Overview

After bloodthirsty revolutionaries murder her family, Françoise Despres vows to avenge their deaths and fight the violent mob destroying her beloved France by becoming a spy for the counter-revolutionary cause. She knows great success, silently slipping between the shadows to carry secret messages that thwart her foes. But she never expected to come up against Sebastien de Bréze, a daring, clever cavalry officer in the revolutionary army and master spy hunter. Who will win this dangerous game of cat and mouse? When Sebastien discovers the spy he has captured is actually a wily, elusive young woman cloaked in men's garb and shrouded in secrets, he finds himself intrigued and titillated. But the crafty woman slips through his grasp and soon he finds himself chasing her through France. Undaunted, he makes it his mission to recapture Françoise Despres, body and soul.

As a French born woman, I am always a bit skeptical of English language novels set in France. I rarely feel the authors truly grasp the beauty and complexity of my culture and history. That was NOT the case with Leah Marie Brown's Silence in the Mist. This novel is beautifully written and impeccably researched. She did justice to the dark, violent history of the French Revolution and tugged at my heartstrings. I would highly recommend this novel for anyone who loves France, history, or romances (though I thought this novel was less of a romance and more of a historical adventure/suspense). The heroine is based on a little-known spy for the monarchists. Her daring and bravery will amaze you, as will Brown's deft ability to build a scene.
