I was given a copy of Saving the Marquise’s Grandaughter through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for an honest review which is as follows:
Set in Eastern France in the 1740’s Suzzane and her family will be in trouble if their secret Hugeonots beliefs are discovered.
Suzzane is in love with Etienne she wants him to ask her to marry her but he barely acknowledges her.
Suzzane has more than Etienne’s unrequited love to worry about if they are found out to be Hugeonots they can be executed and her Mother is dying of the Cancer that has invaded her body.
Soon Suzanne finds that God had carried her a Hugeonots girl to safety in the palinate. Soon Suzanne finds herself on a boat headed to the Colonies sicker than she ever had been so sick that a preacher offers to give her her last rites. Instead on the boat the preacher marries the German man who has been carrying for her while she was sick on the ship.
Will Suzanne learn to see the marriage to Johan was part of God’s plan for her life, or will she become bitter over the way things turned out? Will Johan and Suzanne get their happily ever after.
Five out of five stars
