The Mark of the King

The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green

recommended by June

Unjustly imprisoned for the death of her client, midwife Julianne Chevalier is exiled to the French colony of Louisiana in 1720. She marries a fellow convict in order to sail, but when tragedy strikes–and a mystery unfolds–Julianne must find her own way in this dangerous land while bearing the brand of a criminal. There is a lot of history about colonial Louisiana and the hardships and danger faced by the settlers. The main character Julianne inspires faith and courage throughout the story.
