Saving The Marquise's Granddaughter by Carrie Fancett Pagels
Johan Rousch, a Palatine peasant, brings her to safety. This story of seeking refuge, hit a personal chord to me, as I was also a daughter of refugee parents from East Germany. So these type of events are very close to my heart. As they attempt to seek passage to the New World, again it duplicates my life but in a different century, of course. However, as a result, I was totally able to relate to the fears, the emotions and the events of the book.
Ms. Fancett Pagels has a very descriptive way of writing that brings the reader to the feeling that they can totally visualize the setting and feelings that are transpiring in the story. I really enjoyed the book and am sure you will also. Being as this book was based upon genealogical research of the author's, I can totally relate as that is what I do professionally.
The book is set to release on June 3, 2016. You can grab a copy right here!
