Marie must come up with a plan to save her cousin from being sent away to work in a story set against the turbulent backdrop of late-eighteenth-century Paris. Original.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6--Marie is a young Parisian in pre-Revolutionary France, and the slight story tells of cousins earning money by making sachets. It is the better of the two books. Juliet is an 11-year-old girl celebrating a seasonal feast day in medieval England. It is the tedious tale of commoners seeking medicine for an ailing falcon. Both novels have afterwords explaining the historical time periods during which they take place. Both also have glossaries that are of dubious value. A leper, for example, is defined as "one suffering the disease of leprosy" with no entry for leprosy. The books emphasize historical accuracy (one chapter in Juliet contains a conversation written in authentic old English), but sacrifice plot and characterization in the process. Each story is accompanied by cheerful and informative illustrations. Advertisements for dolls representing the main characters are appended. Marginal purchases.
