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?

Customer Reviews For "The Mark of the King"

Intense historical fiction
4 stars By Jacqueline, Feb 01 2017
This is a historical novel set in the early 1700's. This book is very well written and is difficult to put down although rather gruesome at times. It certainly depicts how hard life was for these people. This isn't a novel for the faint of heart as it follows the lives and deaths of the early colonists sent by the French to Louisiana. It was enlightening to learn this history.  Not the sort of book to read for a fun afternoon enjoyment.
