About the Author
Arlem Hawks began making up stories before she could write. Living all over the Western United States and traveling around the world gave her a love of cultures and people and the stories they have to tell. With her travels came an interest in history, especially the history of her English heritage. She lives in Utah with her husband and three children.
Reviews
"Hawks continues to brilliantly mine the political turmoil in France during its bloody revolutionary years. When soldier Maxence Étienne refuses to shoot Armelle Bernard for throwing a bucket at a comrade, Armelle decides it is only fair that she, in turn, try to save Maxence's life. With some help from her family and friends, Armelle organizes Maxence's escape from prison, where he has been flung for refusing to follow orders. However, Armelle has another reason for helping break Maxence out of jail; she's hoping that he can provide her with information that could be the key Armelle needs to locate her fugitive father. Hawks creates compelling story lines that not only vividly bring this dramatic era to life but also allow readers to experience it intimately through individual characters and their search for love, happiness, and security amidst radical political change."-- "Booklist"
"Excellent historical fiction by a well-versed author. Hawks manages to tell a clear, yet heart-rending story. Historical notes can be found in the book, as well as a French term guide. The themes of family and freedom feature heavily in the novel, including an important message of loving others despite differing political beliefs."-- "Compass Book Ratings"
