Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould in their new book, “my brother's crown book coverMy Brother’s Crown” Book One in the Cousins of the Dove published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the lives of Catherine Gillet and Renee Talbot.

From the back cover:  Women Of Uncommon Courage

France, 1685. Catherine Gillet knows her brother, Jules, wants to protect her from the sinister threats of the French crown. But Jules is involved in a potentially deadly enterprise, one connected with an encoded document. When his actions put the whole family at risk, will Catherine find a way to save them?

Virginia, present day. Renee Talbot, a direct descendant of Catherine’s, is fascinated by the document that’s been part of her family legacy for more than three centuries. Certain its pages hold hidden secrets, she takes a closer look–and makes a shocking discovery. But when memories of a childhood trauma are rekindled, she’s forced to seek answers of a different kind. Inspired by the faith and bravery of Catherine, can Renee find the truth and face her deepest fears at last?

From the authors of the Christy Award-winning The Amish Midwife comes an epic story of two women, centuries apart, each discovering her own hidden bravery, standing for what she believes in, and finding love in unexpected places.

Welcome to the first book in the “Cousins of the Crown” series. Ms. Clark and Ms. Gould have done a tremendous job of weaving 1685 France and Present Day Virginia story lines together.  Catherine and Renee are wonderful characters that the authors have breathed life into and that we root for them to succeed. “My Brother’s Crown” is a lot of fun and it entertains you as you keep flipping pages as you try to find out what is going to happen next.  Ms. Clark and Ms. Gould have a great way of telling the story and moving it along at a nice pace. A really enjoyable read. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
