My friend, Molly Noble Bull, just released a wonderful historical romance that explores the era of the French Huguenots and the persecution that drove them from their native country. Molly throws in an even more persecuted group, the Jews, to make this a tense international chase, as our hero and heroine flee for their lives from an obsessed French army captain. Isn't the cover gorgeous?

You can pick up this fascinating read on-line at,,, and other on-line outlets, as well as fine bookstores throughout the US.
