Product Description

Royal French Court intrigue and murder surround a beautiful young couturiere and her dashing nobleman-husband as the Queen Mother Catherine de Medici unfolds her nefarious scheme to preserve her reign.

Rachelle Macquinet, couturiere from one of France's most celebrated silk-making families, is under palace arrest at Saint Germain-en-Laye. While Rachelle creates a royal gown, she is ensnared in the Queen Mother's plot against the Huguenots and must use her wits to preserve her own life.

Fabien has returned from a venture against Spain to claim Rachelle as his bride, but not without a price: the Queen Mother plans to implicate him in an assassination!

Publisher's Description

Royal French Court intrigue surrounds a beautiful young couturiere and her dashing nobleman-husband as Queen Mother Catherine de Medici unfolds her devious scheme to preserve her reign. Rachelle Macquinet, couturiére from one of France’s most celebrated silk-making families, is under palace arrest at Fontainebleau. While creating a royal gown, she is ensnared, along with her husband, Marquis Fabien de Vendome, in the Queen Mother’s secret murderous scheme. Fabien has returned from a venture against Spain to claim Rachelle as his bride, but not without a price: the Queen Mother plans to implicate him in an assassination! Fabien and Rachelle are caught in history’s deadly swirl and love’s uncertainties as they seek to escape to the safety of England. Faith in Christ must uphold them in a time of great persecution that demands greater courage.

ChristianBookPreviews

Threads of Silk by Linda Lee Chaikin is an intriguing novel set in historic France where a young couturiere, Rachelle Macquinet, is commissioned to create a beautiful royal gown, but is soon caught up in a murderous plot being hatched by the Queen. Rachelle’s husband, Fabien, is also forced into a terrible situation as the Queen plans to accuse him of assassination.

The story escalates as Fabien and Rachelle determine to abandon their native France and escape into the refuge of England. Reliance on God is stressed throughout the journey of the two lovers. However, there never seems to be a great climax in the novel. There is great potential as the story winds along adventurous plots and romantic endeavors, but the ending seems to lead only as an entry-point toward a fourth novel. Anyone coming in now, at novel three, will have a lot of catching up to do and will leave this book feeling “up in the air” as to the outcome of the central characters and the culmination of the main plot.

But for the devoted fan of this series, this book is successful in continuing this ambitious story. The characters are dynamic and force the reader to keep turning the pages, even if some of the action moves a little slowly. I am looking forward to the fourth and last installment of this series, and recommend this as a great story for anyone who wishes for a story of faith and adventure. -- Heather Schultz, ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Each of the Daughters of Silk stories are interesting and exciting as the author continued to follow the family during an extremely trying time. I enjoyed watching the faith of the characters develop and grow.

    What happened to book 4??? Was due out a LONGGG time ago. It will be very unsatisfying if, for some reason, this series never gets a proper ending.

    I love this series. The intrigue, the faithfulness of Rachelle so inspiring. A great series. It leaves me wondering when is the 4th book coming out. I actually am reading the series again and I rarely read books the second time.
