    Good readIt was a good experience But the ending I did not like Though no one can dispute about the French immigration to America, but the great shipment of French men and women to New France occurred 40 years later during the reign of Louis XIV.

    Difficult but rewardingThis was a slow and difficult read It was almost too descriptive and the message a bit repetitive However, I did enjoy the story and I am glad I finished it It is not among my favorites of Taylor Caldwell s books.

    As hostilities flare between Catholic and Huguenot, Cardinal Richelieu relentlessly pursues the favors of Queen Anne The story tells the saga of two brothers, Arsene de Richepin and Monsieur de Rechepin, personal secretary of Cardinal Richelieu They represent two opposite worlds which never will meet each other The author has a similar style as Dumas in telling some historical facts, the pre revolutionary ideas of Paul de Vitry and the high price he payed for this, the dramatic siege of La Ro As hostilities flare between Catholic and Huguenot, Cardinal Richelieu relentlessly pursues the favors of Queen Anne The story tells the saga of two brothers, Arsene de Richepin and Monsieur de Rechepin, personal secretary of Cardinal Richelieu They represent two opposite worlds which never will meet each other The author has a similar style as Dumas in telling some historical facts, the pre revolutionary ideas of Paul de Vitry and the high price he payed for this, the dramatic siege of La Rochelle by the french and english people

    Can t seem to get enough of Taylor Caldwell.6 26 Evidently I couldstalled out on this one after 66 pages While Caldwell wrote extremely well about the 19th and early 20th centuries, and also wrote successful novels with biblical settings, she seemed out of her depth in the 17th century Paris of Cardinal Richelieu To me it had the feel and ambiance of one of those technicolor costume dramas made at 20th Century Fox in the 1940s and 1950s.
