Written on Silk for me turned out to be not as good as Daughter of Silk. I will probably eventually read the third in the series to have read it, but overall the book was a bit dragging to me. There were parts of it that stood out like the poor massacre of the Huguenots but over all it just seemed to be sluggish and drag. There were a lot of mentions of scripture of course, but this was to be expected given the subject material however I felt it might have been a little bit over done and rather than add to the story it started to sound a bit like you were being preached at.

It is not a bad book just slow moving and I would have liked to see a bit more historical information put into than what was. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310263018, Paperback)

A royal wedding masks the unfolding of Catherine de Medici's murderous plot against the Huguenots. Will any of the Huguenot princes survive? Life and death rest with two people ... Rachelle Dushane-Macquinet, couturiere from a celebrated silk-making family, has come back to the Louvre Palais to create the royal wedding gown. Recruited into the evil Queen Mother's ring of women spies, she must use her wits to preserve her honor---and the lives of her fellow Huguenots. Marquis Fabien de Vendome has also returned from a buccaneering venture against Spain. The Queen Mother plans to implicate him in an assassination. But Fabien has designs of his own. A man and a woman caught up in history's deadly swirl and love's uncertainties seek to escape the venom of Madame le Serpent. Faith in Christ must uphold them, and all who stand alone, in a city gone diabolically mad.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:22:18 -0400)

Intrigue, murder, betrayal. Not only could Rachelle Dushane-Macquinet lose the man she loves, her life is in jeopardy as well.
