The injured young woman Michel Belanger finds in the woods is certainly an aristocrat And in the midst of France's bloody revolution sheltering nobility merits a trip to the guillotine Yet despite the risk Miche It boggles this reader's mind that this is a debut novel Rawlings writes like a seasoned pro With the tight plot impeccable characterization and enough emotional angst to water log the Kleenex company this is a romance lover's dream Seriously good Love the unusual setting revolutionary France There's a history lesson or two or three within the pages which I found to be a fascinating bonus Kudos to Love Inspired for branching out from their norm and to Rawlings for inspiring them to do so This is a stomach churning knuckle whitening read from cover to cover I was an emotional wreck all the way through between shouting warnings chiding stubbornness and wanting to throw something at someone including the author occasionally LOL But I survived to tell the tale to dream about the tale to carry on the tale to dream up a new tale based on this onewell let's just say the story is still with me and I'm praying it's not long before Rawlings' next book is out And the romance Oh la la It's there in spades despite the impossibility of it all And Rawlings creates incredibly intimate moments even in the midst of anger and hurt Scenes that shot daggers at this sensitive reader's heart Totally amazing; completely fulfilling The powerful inspirational thread made me suirm and I battled right along with Michel and Isabelle marveling at what a benevolent God we have and the faith and strength of so many in history who survived untold horrors but still believed This one is a gem a definite must read

text Sanctuary for a Lady

Sanctuary for a LadyL knows he must bring the wounded girl to his cottage to healAttacked by soldiers and left for dead Isabelle de La Rouchecauld has lost everything A duke's daughter cannot hope for mercy in France so escaping to I normally stick to Regency England and the American West when it comes to Christian Fiction Historical Fiction However I decided to give this a shot because it's the FRENCH REVOLUTION and it was awesome Michel is a French peasant who is NOT a strong supporter of the Revolution tbh it was mainly the big cities that were 100% Long Live the Revolution however I still applaud the author for having a character that still isn't the biggest fan of revolution but he still HATES the French nobility Isabelle is a French noble who has survived five or so YEARS in revolutionary France I loved how we got a different look at the Revolution from these POVs The romance was sweet the plot was great All in all it was a good read Also I'm really loving these Love Inspired Historical novels
