Summary

After her French father and English mother are brutally murdered, bluestocking Madeleine Moreau impulsively travels to France to find the family she didn't know existed. Madeleine is in favour of the people's revolution, but her views are shaken after she arrives in Paris and witnesses Louis XVI's death by guillotine. When France declares war on England, Madeleine is trapped, but enigmatic Comte Etienne d'Aubery comes to the rescue when he offers her shelter in his home, Chateau Mirabelle.

Chateau Mirabelle is a place of dark and haunting secrets, and as the Revolution gains momentum Madeleine must draw on all her reserves of strength to save Etienne from certain death and ensure their future happiness.

Critic reviews

"Full of passion and drama.... I was captivated by this moving, heart-warming and beautifully woven story - gripping, atmospheric, eloquently told and full of rich detail." (Kate Furnivall, best-selling author of The Russian Concubine)

slow start but eventually unputdownable

This is the fourth Charlotte Betts novel I've read in quick succession. Initially i thought it was a little slow to start and i wouldn't enjoy it-All the books have the same formula but with different characters-however I was soon hooked and couldn't stop reading. I've wanted to read a novel set during the French revolution for a while and this completely hit the spot. I loved the way the author keeps you reading to see how the love story unfolds with Madeline and Etienne and I was willing them on all the way and almost fell in love with Etienne myself. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the narrative was excellent as always from Anne Dover
