Saving the Marquise's Granddaughter by Carrie Fancett Pagels ~ Review

Saving the Marquise's GranddaughterLucie's Review:

Guillame "Guy" and his younger sister Suzanne are Huguenots in France during a time of great unrest and political instability. After her father is arrested Suzanne must follow through with the escape plan on her own.

She entrusted into the care of Johan Rousch, a man willing to risk his life to keep her safe as they travel to America.

New opportunities await on a path fraught with danger.

Suzanne really grows a lot over the course of the book and the way that she sees the world changes as well. In the beginning she comes off as naive, and a bit spoiled, blaming her parent's faith for all of her problems, and preferring her grandmother's traditions more. But through Johan and his unwavering faith, she comes to see things in a different light.

Overall, a real journey of character for Suzanne, who experiences a whole new side of life. The book was very well researched. It was a bit slow to start, but had a great ending, and interesting characters living during a challenging era. Great for fans of French history.
