about

At the dawn of the French revolution, masses of hungry peasants burn the chateaux of aristocrats throughout France. After the death of his estranged family, an 18 year-old nobleman, the Marquis Marcel de la Croix, is forced to raise the royalist banner, despite his own revolutionary leanings. The wreck of his family fortress becomes a bastion for newly disenfranchised aristocrats, and Marcel and his fiery associate, Pierre Lafont, lead a rebel group called the League of the Star. After a bitter falling out with Lafont, Marcel escapes to England incognito, hoping to put the past behind him. In England he encounters several French emigres: the large, brutish former soldier, M. Tolouse, the haughty Mlle. de Courteline, and the sheltered Mlle. Vallon. As these traveling exiles are forced together, a young boy in their company begins to intrigue them with a mysterious tale of love. Can a simple love story, begun merely to entertain the weary travellers, hold the key to Marcel's fate?
N. R. Cruse surrounds herself with good literature and roaring fire, shunning general society. Her writing, working and dreaming are done in a cozy little house somewhere in the wilds of Alberta. She comes by her love of the written word honestly, as she is the great (x8) granddaughter of Daniel Defoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masterful page-turner! I loved so many things about this book, so much so that I read it twice! It feels so authentic as you are reading, like you've really entered a bygone era, not just a modern interpretation. There is romance and intrigue in just the right amounts, and several plots that interweave to keep you constantly turning the pages. If you feel like losing yourself in historical dreaminess and can afford a few late nights, then this is the book for you!
