The Courage of Queen Jeanne d'Albret

by Farenhorst, Christine

Jeanne díAlbret, born in 1528, is the only daughter of the King and Queen of Navarre, an area straddling the Pyrenees. Siding with her beloved Huguenots, Jeanne steps onto the battlefield of history during the tumultuous years of the Reformation (1517Ė1559). As deadly political events swirl around the tiny kingdom, much of it on the Iberian Peninsula, Queen Jeanne is forced to choose: Will she shelter fleeing Huguenots under the very nose of Catherine de Medicisís henchmen, or save her own life? The book takes its readers into the turbulent Reformation times of sixteenth century France. The author has skillfully woven accurate details of setting and character and issues of faith into a compelling account of the life of Jeanne díAlbret. From childhood onward the readers are shown Godís equipping of Jeanne for her role as a Deborah who stepped forward when others quailed. Historical figures such as John Calvin, William Farel, Philip II and many others are part of the plot. Part of the Chosen Daughters series.
