Love's First Light
Hope lies hidden in the light of the stars…
But will a tragic connection tear him apart?
Christophé, the Count of St. Laurent, is alone.
His only companion? The horrific memories of seeing his family
sacrificed to the blood-soaked French Revolution. The once-charmed
aristocrat escapes to an ancient castle on France’s southern border, where only
his bright love for astronomy can fight dark memories of the guillotine. But the
medieval city of Carcassonne holds more than a hiding place. For it is there he
meets Scarlett, a young widow with secrets of her own.
Scarlett has accepted the desolate life she leads as penance for not being the wife
she longed to be for her deceased husband. Then, during a midnight visit to her
husband’s grave, she encounters a man who changes everything. A man of sorrow
and mystery, whose passion for the heavens and his faith stirs her as nothing ever has.
But a terrible discovery awaits: one that will break Christophé’s heart—and
destroy his first glimmer of hope since horror invaded his world. But Scarlett will
not give up. Even if she must storm the gates of hell itself, she will bring Christophé
back to the light of forgiveness—and love.
Love's First Light - Reviewed by Rel at Relz Reviewz
I loved everything about Scarlett & Christophé's story ~ the location, the historical setting, the characters, their interaction and the circumstances that led them together. You won't find colourless, stilted interaction in a Jamie Carie novel, her characters are vibrant, full of passion and angst in equal measure, as they face tragedy in the turbulent years of the French Revolution, a period of time that changed the world. Christian publishing needs authors like Jamie, who provide engrossing, vivid tales of flawed characters seeking both love and faith, with zeal and fervor. Love's First Light is a top notch read for anyone who loves to be transported to another time and place for the mere price of a book!
