Book Review: The Mark of the King

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:


Sweeping historical fiction set at the edge of the continent.

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:


Jocelyn Green inspires faith and courage as the award-winning author of ten books to date, including Wedded to War, a Christy Award finalist in 2013; Widow of Gettysburg; Yankee in Atlanta; and The 5 Love Languages Military Edition, which she coauthored with bestselling author Dr. Gary Chapman. A former military wife herself, her passion for military families informs all of her writing as well as her numerous speaking opportunities. Jocelyn graduated from Taylor University with a BA in English and now lives with her husband and two children in Iowa.

My Opinion

Since I am making my first trip to New Orleans in a couple weeks, I was so excited to see that this book was based in New Orleans.

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!
