Early Reviews & Giveaway of Saving the Marquise's Granddaughter by Carrie Fancett Pagels


Thank you to early readers and reviewers for these great reviews of Saving the Marquise's Granddaughter:

Endorsement from Author Laura Frantz:


With a unique European-American setting and characters inspired by a true historical couple, Saving the Marquise’s Daughter has romance and suspense in spades, all the while showcasing the author’s passion for the period. The lovely cover is just the beginning!  
Laura Frantz, author of The Mistress of Tall Acre
*****


Reviewer Betti Mace: Oh my goodness! Carrie Fancett Pagels has done it again. This story, set in the 1700's, had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time. From her position as 'noblesse ancienne', the ancient aristocracy of France, Suzanne had much to look forward to. Her hand in marriage to one of the same aristocracy was expected. Roman Catholicism was considered the only religion in France. Why then, did her parents have to believe differently? The Huguenots were to be killed - would there be any reprieve for her? After all, she had gone to mass with her Grand-mere and even had her rosary.... Would she ever learn that God had a plan for her, not for her family, but for herself? How much would it take and would the young German, Johann, have a part in her finally learning to believe?

Saving the Marquise's Granddaughter is available for pre-order in both ebook (June) and paperback (July) from Amazon, from Pelican Books, and Barnes and Noble.

Giveaway: An ebook copy of Saving the Marquise's Granddaughter. Leave a comment.
