About the book:
After being imprisoned and branded for the death of her client, twenty-five-year-old midwife Julianne Chevalier trades her life sentence for exile to the fledgling 1720s French colony of Louisiana, where she hopes to be reunited with her brother, serving there as a soldier. To make the journey, though, women must be married, and Julianne is forced to wed a fellow convict.
When they arrive in New Orleans, there is no news of Benjamin, Julianne's brother, and searching for answers proves dangerous. What is behind the mystery, and does military officer Marc-Paul Girard know more than he is letting on?
With her dreams of a new life shattered, Julianne must find her way in this dangerous, rugged land, despite never being able to escape the king's mark on her shoulder that brands her a criminal beyond redemption.
About the author:
Besides being a subject of interest, this book was AMAZING! Jocelyn Green just shot to the top of my favorite author list and I can't wait to read more from her.
This book had mystery, intrigue, love and so much history - I just loved every minute of it! I highly recommend The Mark of the King! Jocelyn Green is so talented and this book was so interesting and amazing - I couldn't put it down and was so sad when it was done!
