Because of their Protestant faith in Catholic France during the 17th century, Huguenots Francois and Madeleine Clavell's estate is overtaken by King Louis XIV's dragoons. Madeleine takes it upon herself to save her family by calling on her past love affair with the king. This is a desperate and risky decision, and one that forever changes her family's future.
Features the following bonus materials: a map, author and historical notes, and a reading group guide, making it a perfect selection for book clubs.
Madeleines shared history with the king holds the key to her familys life...or death.
Seventeenth century France is an unsafe time to be a Huguenot. By order of King Louis XIV, all French Protestants must immediately convert or face imprisonment--or death. The kings dragoons ferret out the nonconformists, pillaging villages and destroying homesteads.
When the kings soldiers descend on the Clavell estate, the familys fate hangs in the balance. Quickly, quietly, they send their two sons into hiding, trusting that the young age of their daughter will guarantee her protection. But the dragoons will not be dissuaded; they hold the manor hostage looking for clues of their guilt or innocence. However, Madeleine Clavell, the lady of the manor, holds a secret--one possible chance to save the family. She and the king share a past.
Once a beautiful young lady in the French court whom Louis loved, Madeleine travels to Versailles to plead for mercy from the fickle king, hoping to regain his favor and save her family. Its a gamble, but she is left with no other choice. Madeleine soon faces an agonizing decision--one that changes her family forever.
