"Circa France, 1562: Nineteen-year-old Minou Joubert receives an anonymous letter at her father's bookshop. Sealed with a distinctive family crest, it contains just five words: SHE KNOWS THAT YOU LIVE. But before Minou can decipher the mysterious message, a chance encounter with a young Huguenot convert, Piet Reydon, changes her destiny forever. For Piet has a dangerous mission of his own, and he will need Minou's help if he is to stay alive."-- Provided by publisher.

France's late-sixteenth-century Wars of Religion provide the searing backdrop for this meaty historical by the bestselling author of the Languedoc trilogy. In the first installment in a new series, Mosse returns to her beloved Languedoc to lay the foundation of a generational saga that will eventually wind its way through centuries and across continents. In addition to the brutal religious conflict between Catholics and Huguenots plaguing the countryside and turning friends into enemies, a long-buried family secret provides another element of intrigue amidst the ensuing chaos. When a bookseller's daughter, Minou Joubert, receives a cryptic letter containing only five words, "she knows that you live," a chain of events is set in motion that includes adventure, betrayal, and a Romeo-and-Juliet-like romance between Catholic Minou and Huguenot Piet Reydon. As usual, Mosse infuses the narrative with plenty of authentic historical detail while creating a highly charged atmosphere of intrigue. The mystery, the love story, and the incendiary nature of both setting and plot will keep readers turning the pages and eagerly awaiting the next volume. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
