This Book received a 4 Bark rating.
I've been a fan of Leslie Gould and Mindy Starns Clark since I read their Amish stories, I've read their books together and separately, and I've really enjoyed them. As you can imagine I was thrilled when I received their latest book, My Brother's Crown. But I became even more excited when I saw that the story was about a Huguenot family and their modern descendant(s). I have Huguenot ancestors who fled persecution for freedom in America so I have devoured every Christian Fiction book about them that I've found.
Leslie Gould and Mindy Starns Clark have penned a fascinating tale of love, sacrifice, and finding peace. The writing is seamless and I really couldn't tell that there were two authors. They use chapter breaks that are labeled with each girl's name to differentiate between them and it was really easy to follow. My Brother's Crown has the best of both of my favorite genres, Renee must solve mysteries from both her childhood and family history, and Catherine lives during one of the most dangerous times in Christian history.
My Brother's Crown is a a great read whether you like contemporary with a dash of mystery and romance or historical with a dash of romance and danger. Leslie Gould and Mindy Starns Clark are two very talented authors and I can't wait to find out what they have in store for book 2.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives My Brother's Crown by Leslie Gould and Mindy Starns Clark a 4 Bark rating.
