The Rose and the Thistle

by Laura Frantz

April 1715, Chateau de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France

Struck by sunlight, the sprawling chateau was a blinding, rose-hued white.

    1. I am loving Laura’s book so much. I am 63% done. I wanted to read it slowly to savor it, but that’s not happening. LOL.
      I’ve heard really good things about A Mark of Grace. I hope you love it when you get to it.

  2. Hope you love the story. That’s an unusual era – could be cool if you learn something about the life and times of then. thanks for the visit.

    1. I have learned that nothing is new under the sun. The same type of turmoil disturbing people’s lives then are very similar to what is happening now. Some people want to control everyone, and most people just want to be left alone. The story itself is amazing. Laura Frantz always writes the best! I hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

  3. We’re twins for First Line Friday today! I loved this book, it was so good. I’m currently reading The sisters of Sea View by Julie Klassen. The first line is: “April 1819. Sarah Summers carefully lifted the family heirloom, a warm mantle of nostalgia settling over her.” Hope you had a great weekend!
