Item Description...
Overview
Jeanne d'Albret, born in 1528, is the only daughter of the King and Queen of Navarre. Standing with her beloved Huguenots, Jeanne steps onto the battlefield of history during the tumultuous years of the Reformation (1517-1559). As deadly political events swirl around her tiny Kingdom of Navarre, Queen Jeanne is forced to choose: Will she hide the fleeing Huguenots under the very nose of Catherine de Medicis's henchmen or save her own life? The Chosen Daughters series highlights the lives of ordinary women who by God's grace accomplish extraordinary things.

Publishers Description
When she converted to Protestantism, Jeanne found freedom of conscience. She hid Reformed ministers who were being persecuted, and she built schools and hospitals.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
History brought to life  Jan 26, 2010
Wings like a Dove: The Courage of Queen Jeanne D'Albret, written by Christine Farenhorst, tells the story of Jeanne D'Albret, the daughter of the King and Queen of Navarre, France, who one day assumes the throne.

The story is set in the time of the Reformation (1517-1559) which was a time of religious persecution for the Huguenots. The Huguenots were a group of French Protestants who criticized the Roman Catholic Church, specifically the many rites and rituals of the church. The Huguenots thought that Christians should live their lives with simple faith in God. They relied on God for their salvation, not on the rituals of the Church.

While growing up, Jeanne became aware of the injustices done towards the Huguenots. They were killed and persecuted for their faith. She didn't like the way they were treated just because they stood up for what they believed. When she became Queen, she chose to publicly take a stand for the Huguenot faith.

Like Margaret Wilson in "Against the Tide: The Valor of Margaret Wilson," another book in this series, Jeanne D'Albret was strong enough to stand up for what was right and just, even though her parents, and even her husband, weren't.

There is a glossary of terms at the end of the book that defines some of the words used in the text that might not be familiar to the reader.

What I Like: As I've said before, I like historical fiction, especially stories that are written as well as this one.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Christine M. Irvin - Christian Children's Book Review
 
Wonderful book!  Aug 1, 2009
I have all four books of this set and the only thing I find wrong is they do not use the KJV for scriptures. However, this book encourages girls to do right even if their family is not. Very well writen.
