The Mark of the King | Jocelyn Green
7 posts | 8 read | 8 to read
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.

I heard this quote last night as I listened on my way to work. I read The Mark of the King last year and I must say that the audiobook is awesome. I struggle reading the French words but the narrator does an excellent job.

This book left me speechless! I have read a lot of historical fiction works, but nothing has compared to this roller coaster of a read. This story of colonial New Orleans will pull you in from the first page! I did not know what to expect, but it was not what the many twists and turns that this book takes. The author does an amazing job at portraying the brutality that many colonists faced, when moving to America.

Interesting! Historical fiction that starts in France and ends in the fledgling French colony of Louisiana USA.
