Go Here to enter Jamie Carrie's Snowflake Contest.
From the start of the book, I knew that I was going to like it. This is the first book I have read by Jamie Carrie and I really enjoyed it. I like historical books but I believe this is the first one I have read about the French Revolution it was very interesting. I never knew the story of how all the French aristocrat's were be-headed. It was so terrible that one man "Robespierre" could come in and cause this. He was so mean, as Christophe (the count of St Laurent) grabbed his little sister and hid in a secret hole in a wall while his parents and brothers were killed with the guillotine in their own family room.
After this happened Christophe and Emilie ran down the street to an old friends of his, but someone was after them so he told his sister to run to the red door and run into the home of his friend, but he could not find her. Then the "citizen" movement that it was being called brought more people up on a platform to be-head and they had a young girl with blond hair with a hood over her head and they be-headed her so Christophe lost it and ran. Even King Louis XVI and his young wife Marie Antoinette was beheaded during this revolution.
He meet Scarlett in the cemetery where she was putting flowers on her husband's grave and she was with child. They became friends but can he get over the nightmares of what happened to his family and what will happen to the citizen movement. Scarlett was married to Robespierre's cousin and she didn't know how mean they were. Will her child be born healthy? Will Christophe finally be able to be able to sleep again with out nightmares?
This book was sent to me and autographed by the author through B&H Media for review.
