This is book two of the Silk House series. Let's just say I'm anxiously awaiting book three (set for release in Dec 07)!! Wonderful historical fiction set in France about the persecution of the Hugenots (French Protestants). Very well researched, and I love the details about the silk-making industry. Great romance, too! I would recommend reading Book One "Daughter of Silk" to get a grip on all the characters and intrigues at court.
