My Review:

Such a beautifully written historical tale of courage, love, and struggle. I was caught up in the prose. The beauty of the language spoke to me and completely brought me back in history. It was a rarity to see such detail in a book written in the present.

The words that Ms. Christensen used touched me in such a profound way. I loved every aspect of this story. You could project yourself back in time with her scenes.

With a brilliant reflection of the penal system of the time and the lengths that Elizabeth Cellier will go to in order to preserve the sanctity of human lives in a time when one’s religion could be considered a crime. The heart that Mrs. Elizabeth Cellier shows is vividly laid bare for the readers. Even the courtroom scenes were dynamic and riveting. The facts of the actual forward thinking Mrs. Cellier could not have been in more capable hands than with Ms. Christensen.


My Recommendation:

This is one of those books that you are just thankful to have found and enjoyed. It is a must read for anyone that loves a good historical tale.
