Abundance the novel

Marie Antoinette never did say that the poor should eat cake, and was in many ways a woman with great depth of character, but I can't help thinking that she didn't really face up to the darkness that beset the world she lived in, and in the end she lost her head, poor thing. This novel is a celebration of the sensuous side of life and perhaps also a cautionary tale for escapists and for people such as me who confuse an abundance of pretty possessions with spiritual abundance.
