The Eloquence of Blood by Judith Rock

"An exciting new discovery" (Library Journal) returns to seventeenth-century Paris with a new historical novel of intrigue.

Christmas in Paris, 1686. The spirit of the season is shattered when Martine Mynette is murdered while trying to prove that she is the adopted daughter of the last surviving Mynette heir and thus claim her inheritance-money that the family otherwise intended to go to the Jesuit school, Louis le Grand.

Now, with Jesuits being implicated in Martine's death, rhetoric teacher Charles du Luc will not rest until he finds her murderer...

Excellent blending of historical fact with fictional characters and events. The protagonist's reflections on faith and personal truth are handled well by the author. Some of the tenets of the Society of Jesus are revealed to readers who may know very little. The  characters  are believable.The lead character, Charles, is believably portrayed with real depth. The authors grasp of history is convincing. Her  depiction of music, dance, drama, and rhetoric as central to French culture and Court life of that era are exceedingly well done. A good  good read; highly recommended.
