About the book:

The Mark of the King (Bethany House, January 2017)

Sweeping historical fiction set at the edge of the continent

After being imprisoned and branded for the death of her client, twenty-five-year-old midwife Julianne Chevalier trades her life sentence for exile to the fledgling 1720s French colony of Louisiana, where she hopes to be reunited with her brother, serving there as a soldier. To make the journey, though, women must be married, and Julianne is forced to wed a fellow convict.

When they arrive in New Orleans, there is no news of Benjamin, Julianne’s brother, and searching for answers proves dangerous. What is behind the mystery, and does military officer Marc-Paul Girard know more than he is letting on?

With her dreams of a new life shattered, Julianne must find her way in this dangerous, rugged land, despite never being able to escape the king’s mark on her shoulder that brands her a criminal beyond redemption.

Book Review: If you want to enjoy a great Christian Historical Fiction and learn a bit of history, at the same time, this book is for you. I have to say this book far exceeded my expectations. Well written and beautifully crafted…takes one back in time.
This book does have some romance written into it, but it’s not your typical woman meets man, fall in love, kinda book. I was unable to predict the  sequence of events…which for me makes a great read.
I learned a great deal about the founding of New Orleans…especially the way they got people to colonize Louisiana.
This book was a real page turner. I read through this book in only a few days…couldn’t get enough.
I would give this book 5 stars.
