In a land fraught with religious strife, they must break the barriers between status and faith to forge a fresh future in a new world…
After her Huguenot father is arrested, aristocrat Suzanne Richelieu escapes Versailles. Handsome German peasant, Johan Rousch, risks his life to bring her to the safety of his family’s farm in the Palatinate duchy, but when Suzanne’s brother and the French army arrive with a warning that they plan to burn the area, she and Johan are forced to flee. With no money or options, both become indentured servants in exchange for safe passage to Philadelphia.
Suzanne falls gravely ill aboard ship and marries Johan, only to survive with no memory of the wedding—a reality made worse when Johan spots the “priest” who married them working as a surveyor and later in Quaker cleric garb. Are their wedding vows valid?
When Suzanne's former fiancé arrives in port, planning to abduct her, Johan must save her again—but can he do so before Suzanne is lost to him forever?
This book is a wonderful historical romance of love, surprises, sadness, tension, misunderstandings, affection, doubt, suspense, happiness, and excitement. The plot begins in France during the persecution of the Huguenots and ends in the American colonies. The time in France is a time of secrets, deceptions, and retaliations that could end in death for those of the Protestant faith. The colonist are people with different backgrounds and prejudices. The author's historic settings have the sounds, sights, smells, and feel of each scene so that you feel you are a part of the story. I love the inner strength of the main characters, Suzanne and Johan, and may interesting secondary characters. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy historical romance. I was given a copy for my honest review.
Loved, loved, loved this story! Follow Johan and Suzanne's story as they travel from land and ship to enter the new world for a new life. Adventure, intrigue, danger, and love are all entwined in this beautifully written story by, Carrie Fancett Pagels! One of her best stories yet!
