Michel Belanger had wanted to build furniture but was refused jobs in Paris. After returning home to the farm, his father passed away while plowing, and Michel feels guilty for ever leaving. Now he’s promised his father to take care of the farm and his mother. While his brother, who does love farming, is off in Paris.
Isabelle Cerise de La Rouchecauld has lost everyone she loves in the Revolution. She has a promise to keep to her sister…she will make it to England, where their aunt is. She’s so close before she’s attacked and left for dead.
Michel struggles with helping an aristocrat. They’ve treated the peasants poorly. But it seems that God has other plans in his life. He has put Isabelle in his life for her to protect. I enjoyed this story, even with some of the challenging issues the people went through, as this was an actual event. The author does well in portraying the struggle of being forgiven and forgiving.
Jean Paul Belanger has stayed in Abbeville and taken over the farm while his brother, Michel, and his new wife have escaped to England. Since then, his mother has passed away. He still mourns the death of his wife and lives with the nightmares of what he had done in the name of justice during the Reign of Terror.
Brigitte Dubois needs to move back to her hometown by her mother and sister. She cannot let her evil father-in-law get his claws into her children’s lives. Into his smuggling empire that her late husband would’ve stepped into. He sends her on a mission with the promise of her freedom…along with the freedom of her children.
Brigitte is sent to find out if Jean Paul is the man who took Henri out of their home and murdered him. What she finds is a kind man who helps the widows and injured in his town. I loved both this story and the previous one.
Lord Gregory Halston is in enemy territory. He’s come to France to retrieve his brother from prison. Unfortunately, things aren’t going quite as planned. The man he hired as a guide disappeared, his brother is in bad shape, the man he blames for all of this…is with them. They have a long way to travel with a sick man and no guide.
Danielle Belanger and her younger brother, Serge, are returning from Reims. She couldn’t find a husband in her hometown, so they spent a few months at her aunt and uncle’s home. Unfortunately, no man was willing to take her as she is. They’d rather have someone who can accomplish wifely duties rather than throw knives and hunt…go figure.
As their paths cross, both Danielle and Gregory struggle. Danielle hates the English for killing her brother, and Gregory is stuck in his aristocratic ways. I loved this whole series. If you cry easily…you may want to keep the tissues nearby.
