Lucas de Granville--pious, respectable, impoverished, lonely--will do nearly anything for the godfather who raised him, even though his godfather doesn't seem to want to do anything for him.

Melisande--mundane, illegitimate, dirt poor, lonely--will do nearly anything to make sure her mother and brother have shelter and food, even though they are critical of her lack of magical talent.

When Melisande's father, a pious comte, sends his godson Lucas to bring her to Versailles and help him train her to be a fine, staunchly religious lady, their attraction is immediate, but so is their distrust.

Her eagerness to get as much money as she can as quickly as possible gradually changes into a wish for something higher, better, and holier. Something that Lucas can help her achieve: love.

Melisande 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

The writer's portrait of the overwhelming decadence of the rich and royals, as well as the abject destitution and hunger of the poor is clearly painted. And on the steps of humanity, even lower than the poor, clings the heroine, Melisande and her family since they are witches. Despite everything Melisande is not sobbing, cowering victim. I liked her. Actually, I liked the whole book, though I did wish I could step into the pages with a paddle to swing at a few heads. Very provoking story. The bomb dropped toward the end certainly blindsided me!
