    I found this book online and read the first two chapters fell in love with it and got it from the library I am old fashioned and love reading a real paper book I started reading the third chapter and it was a catastrophe This book was first published in 1943, when Caldwell was 43 years of age, but the third chapter seemed to have been written by a teenager.

    I really wanted to like this book but its florid style overwhelms its passable plot.

    An old epic historical novel that was 1st printed in 1943.

    Good readIt was a good experience But the ending I did not like Though no one can dispute about the French immigration to America, but the great shipment of French men and women to New France occurred 40 years later during the reign of Louis XIV.

    Now all at once the invisible but crushing wings of Louis old agony lifted, fled away into soundless space A wild and unfathomable fulfillment flooded his soul, and with it came a feeling of power and ecstasy, and great release It shook the bastions of his grim gray hatred He was transported to some realm of flame, unbearably bright, and his spirit seemed to become incandescent He shivered His heard rolled and tugged Nameless cries rang through his ears his loneliness was consumed like a straw in a leaping fire He thought I am not alone And as if the words were a spell, the pillar of salt that was his mind was shattered and destroyed and poured out.

    As hostilities flare between Catholic and Huguenot, Cardinal Richelieu relentlessly pursues the favors of Queen Anne The story tells the saga of two brothers, Arsene de Richepin and Monsieur de Rechepin, personal secretary of Cardinal Richelieu They represent two opposite worlds which never will meet each other The author has a similar style as Dumas in telling some historical facts, the pre revolutionary ideas of Paul de Vitry and the high price he payed for this, the dramatic siege of La Rochelle by the french and english people.

    Can t seem to get enough of Taylor Caldwell.6 26 Evidently I could stalled out on this one after 66 pages While Caldwell wrote extremely well about the 19th and early 20th centuries, and also wrote successful novels with biblical settings, she seemed out of her depth in the 17th century Paris of Cardinal Richelieu To me it had the feel and ambiance of one of those technicolor costume dramas made at 20th Century Fox in the 1940s and 1950s.
