The movie was fun, the book was better ;).  When I read the book in
high school (snagged it from my mother), it was a fun historical
thrill to find out that the characters really existed, and I was such
a fangrrl that I wrote the Swedish Consulate for more info on the
Bernadottes.  I think that was the book that got me hooked on
historical fiction.
