If you enjoy reading historical fiction by the likes of Laker, Chevalier, Erickson and other notable genre writers, I submit that you will enjoy this book as well.

As the title suggests, the novel is set during the France's revolutionary years and details the life of Annette Vallon, a Chouan and an historical character unknown to me prior to this book. The novel is many things at once: a romance, an adventure, and a recounting of the horrific events surrounding France's bloodiest epoch.

Tipton's prose is lucid and vivid; the story moves quickly and ends much too soon for the reader.
