France, 1685. Jeanne is the wife of a wealthy merchant, but now she risks losing everything.

Louis XIV's soldiers will stop at nothing to forcibly convert the country's Huguenot "heretics" to the "true" faith. The men ransack Jeanne's belongings and threaten to take her children.

One by one, Jeanne watches her neighbors cave under the constant harassment. She and her husband resolve to hold fast to their Protestant principals of liberty of conscience, but Jeanne wonders if the punishment for their defiance is more than she can bear...

If Jeanne can't find a way to evade the soldiers' clutches, her family will face a fate worse than poverty and imprisonment. They may never see each other again...

Merchants of Virtue is the first book in the Huguenot Chronicles, a trilogy of historical fiction novels. If you like fast-paced adventure, rich layers of historical detail, and inspirational stories based on true events, then you'll love Paul C.R. Monk's stirring novel.
