Overview

Until the time she is eleven years old, Marie Hamilton lives a peaceful life with her grandmother, parents and younger brother on the family estate in England; however, her life changes dramatically when her family moves to France just before the start of the French Revolution. Marie's father is returning to France at the invitation of Louis XVI to reclaim his title and estates as the Comte de Grandville. The family arrives at the magnificent palace of Versailles and quickly becomes part of privileged court life. All is not well, though, in France and only months later the oppressed and starving French people rise up against the Nobility. When the enraged mob storms through the palace, Marie and her family are rescued from grave danger by a strange twist of events, but Marie's story of courage, self-sacrifice and true nobility is not yet over!
