Publisher's Description

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.

    Could not put it down. Jocelyn Green once again delivers a story that deserves the word "epic" to describe it. Filled with twists and turns, she takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of 18th century New Orleans. She makes the colony come alive with its sights and smells and dangers. Her characters are multi-faceted, interesting, and sometimes not what they appear. All in all, a combination that makes it all but impossible to not turn the next page.

    Condemned of a crime she didn't commit, Julianne Chevalier's only hope of escaping her Paris prison is to marry a man she doesn't know and sail for the French colony of New Orleans. Her one bright spot in the hope, however slim, that she might find her brother, a French soldier sent to tame the vast wilderness for the King.

    No spoilers here, you'll have to read it for yourself. But be warned ... you may find yourself still reading long after you should have turned out the light!

    This book was the perfect read for our Christmas vacation! I hadn't ever learned the history behind how Louisiana was settled and found the historical backdrop of this novel so very interesting. Julianne is a strong, determined character that held my attention through this novel. The story was much more than just a romance novel - that is a minor part of the overall story, really. I loved that the main part of the story was Julianne and every part of her personality - her work, her brother, her community. The writing style was lovely and the imagery really brought the settlement of New Orleans to life. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys historical novels. It was interesting and shed light on a side of history that I knew nothing about.

    This is the first Jocelyn Green book I've read, and I'm sure it won't be the last. This is an incredible work of historical fiction that's set in a time that is often forgotten.

    Falsely accused and imprisoned as a criminal beyond redemption, Julianne Chevalier grasps her one chance at freedom and a new beginning in the brand new settlement of New Orleans. But... that freedom comes at an unexpected cost: forced marriage to a fellow convict, and a man she's never even met. Once she arrives in Louisiana, nothing is as she had hoped and expected. She's married to a convict and still seen as a criminal. It's truly a struggle to survive (for Julianne, and the fledgling colony).

    This is certainly not the happiest book I've ever read. Julianne faces seemingly unending injustice, cruelty, and heartbreak. Being a marked criminal in a colony that's struggling to survive is no easy task. However, despite the heartbreak littered throughout this story, I absolutely loved it. Jocelyn has woven and incredibly beautiful, and yet very real tale of life as an early French colonist. I absolutely recommend this book!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    The Mark of the King is an excellent book. I loved it! It captured my attention from the start. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me reading! Jocelyn Green does a great job painting a picture of what life was like in Colonel Louisiana. It was tough! I learned some interesting stuff about the settling of New Orleans & the French and Indian war. The Mark of the King is the story of one women's determination to make the best of any situation. I liked Julianne. She is a tough lady who had her struggles and doubts. She is someone the reader can relate too. I like how she weaves historical fact and Biblical truth throughout this story. I think the reader can learn valuable truths along with the character's.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    The Mark of the King is a great read. I just loved this book. I felt a connection to Julianne right from the start. She went through so much turmoil to overcome. The story is unique and refreshing, starting in 1720 France to Colonial Louisiana. It is truly amazing what our ancestors did to survive.

    This is most definitely a page turner and not one a reader can easily put down.

    Highly highly recommended.

    100 stars.
