From Amazon--This Tangled Skein: The Elizabethan Dilemma (The Reformation - A Family Divided Book 3) March 1572. Having lost her family to the pestilence, Anne Marie duChant leaves France for England to escape an unwanted marriage and reunite with relatives. As she departs Rouen, Huguenot friends are eagerly awaiting the August wedding of Protestant King Henry of Navarre and Catholic Princes Marguerite, ending France's religious wars. She arrives in an England rife with its own religious tensions. Any day, Catholics could overthrow excommunicated Queen Elizabeth in favor of her cousin Mary, while Puritans are demanding a stricter religious policy than Elizabeth will allow. Anne Marie's somewhat impulsive nature and Anabaptist beliefs create tensions with London Calvinist relatives, and her presence threatens to expose a disturbing secret. Her troubles multiply when the man she has come to love is not the man courting her.
My Comments--This Tangled Skein: The Elizabethan Dilemma (The Reformation - A Family Divided Book 3)
The cultural and political scene in 1572 England and France impacts the two main characters by limiting their choices. Orphaned Huguenot Anne Marie duChant flees Catholic France for England hoping for more freedom to choose and practice her faith. The privileged Denzil siblings have never faced anything more challenging than what card game to play. Both brothers Peter and Roger have their eye on Anne Marie. Which one will win her heart? This reviewer won't tell. You'll have to read this incredibly compelling book to find out.
