Late seventeenth-century France is not a good time to be a Huguenot. The Gilletts know this firsthand. But in spite of it they stand fast in their faith even as darkness descends upon their lives. For Catherine Gillett it is probably a little more difficult. While she wishes to save her family her brother continues to grow his business. And there’s a very dark rumor surrounding his business that sends Catherine into a wave of thoughts that threaten to drown her.
In between life and it’s unexpected turns this book took a backburner. What an ill-thought decision. This is a book I should have read on day one. It was AMAZING. I really didn’t have high hopes for it but in order to branch out into contemporary fiction I thought I’d give it a go. I just wished it had been tackled sooner! I love the alternating narratives, but with – wait for it – the contemporary version being my favorite. If there’s a sequel (there had better be) that sucker is getting read as soon as it hits the shelves. The ending was kind-of/kind-of-not a cliffhanger and I’m really eager to follow these characters onto the next stage of their journey. I really don;’t know what else to say, except that it was perfect. The characters were not perfect, but they weren’t flat out complete messes either. A really really good story!
