Review of Sancturary


I really enjoyed this book! It was a page turner from the beginning which surprised me for a historical. It had just the right blend of suspense and romance to keep me reading well past by bedtime. It’s a story of heartbreak for Rachael Levin, a Jew during the 1740’s, when her family is murdered and her home burned to the ground by the French, who despises Jews and Huguenots. She escapes her village with Huguenot Pierre Dupree, her murdered fiancĂ©’s brother. Pierre looses his heart to Rachael and vows to protect her from further harm and suffering, so he attempts to hide his feelings. The two of them find a safe place to stay called the Sanctuary but in order for them to repress suspicions, they must become man and wife.

The French Captain is hot on their trail and vows to have Rachael for himself and won’t stop at anything to get her.

Molly’s book held my interest to the very end and I’m sure that the second one in the series of Faith of Our Fathers will be equally compelling
