A Prisoner of Versailles by Golden Keyes Parsons
If you'd like to be in the drawing for this adventurous, romantic novel, please leave a comment!
This is book two of the exciting series chronicling a Huguenot family, the Clavells, who are persecuted for their faith by the Catholic King Louis XIV of France. It continues where the last book left off, with Madeleine, a wife and mother who was once the childhood sweetheart of King Louis, forced to flee with her family to Switzerland. Her husband is on the brink of death and the ruthless King of France will stop at nothing to have her back at Versailles.
In this book, the life of handsome courtier Pierre Bovee is in danger because of the aid he has given to Madeleine and her family. When Madeleine becomes a prisoner, along with her oldest son, Philippe, it becomes a question of who will rescue whom, especially when a former enemy proves himself a great friend.
This is an exciting, fast-paced adventure, with romance and characters of faith and virtue. I enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to the next book in the series!
