Judith Rock, the author of the “powerful, absorbing, [and] complex”* historical mysteries featuring ex-soldier turned priest Charles du Luc, presents an original novella about the love of his young life…
Pernelle du Luc Bayle is a widow with a young daughter, no dowry to entice a future husband, and a Protestant—a heretic in the eyes of France’s Catholic King, and therefore an enemy of the crown. Her only hope of raising her child in her own faith lies in escaping to freedom in Geneva, Switzerland.
Pursued by the king’s dragoons and unable to trust just anyone with her plight, Pernelle turns to the man she once loved, praying that Charles will be able to help her family reach safety…
Features a preview of the latest Charles du Luc Novel, A Plague of Lies, available October 2012
