Publisher's Description

Pursuing the family name as the finest silk producer in Lyon, the young Huguenot Rachelle Dushane-Macquinet is thrilled to accompany her famous couturier Grandmere to Paris, there to create a silk trousseau for the Royal Princess Marguerite Valois. The Court is magnificent; its regent, Catherine de Medici, deceptively charming … and the circumstances, darker than Rachelle could possibly imagine. At a time in history when the tortures of the Bastille and the fiery stake are an almost casual consequence in France, a scourge of recrimination is moving fast and furious against the Huguenots—and as the Queen Mother's political intrigues weave a web of deception around her, Rachelle finds herself in imminent danger. Hope rests in warning the handsome Marquis Fabien de Vendome of the wicked plot against his kin. But to do so, Rachelle must follow a perilous course.

Rachelle Dushane-Macquinet loves her work as a grisette under her grandmere, a famous couturiere commissioned to create a silk trousseau for Princesse Marguerite Valois. But intrigues abound in the court as Marguerite’s mother, the evil regent Catherine de Medici, plots to keep her power and destroy the Huguenots. A masked man arrives at the palace, and Rachelle’s brother-in-law Sebastien has disappeared.
Huguenots themselves, Rachelle and her grandmere enlist the help of a Catholic marquis, Fabien de Vendome, who is on his own search for answers after the questionable deaths of his parents. Despite their differences in rank and religion, Rachelle and Fabien are drawn to each other, while being drawn deeper into Catherine de Medici’s traps.
This exquisitely written novel lives and breathes French. No need to step back into another time and place – Linda Chaikin instantly transports you there, with enough subtle hints to help you find your way around. Many of the characters are painted sharply as good or evil, yet they don’t detract from the intrigue of the story. Prepare for a read you want to savor as you flip pages to see what happens. Highly recommended, especially for female fans of historical fiction. – Katie Hart, Christian Book Previews.com
