This magnificent historical novel, though a first book, remained near the top of the American best-seller lists for no fewer than ten months-a true test of popularity. Jean Paul Marin, the hero of Frank Yerby’s new novel, is as turbulent and unpredictable, as strange a mixture of idealism and hatred, as the French Revolution itself, in the thick of which he lives and loves and pursues his feuds. Four years in the Comte de Gravereau’s private prison have left a scar on his forehead and a deeper invisible one in his heart.

I first began reading this book while visiting a relative over 25 years ago. The visit ended before I could finish the book, and then the relative got rid of the book during a move. Every so often over the years I would search for the book (partially because I wanted to know how it ended, and partially because the memory of reading the book as a child was a particularly poignant one) but to no avail, until I finally found it on Amazon last year. To be honest, the book was not quite as riveting as my imagination had built it up to be over so many years, but it was a solid read, with interesting characters, a strong sense of time and place, and a satisfying ending. It now has a place on my bookshelf, for me -- and for others, to enjoy.

A woman called Fancy fled from an arranged marriage by her father. She was very naive with little education but held her head high with honor and integrity. She figured out how to raise herself without lowering her standards and fell in love with Court Brantly. The story is very well written but I don't think Court Brantley deserved her. Women's liberation certainly needed to be a part of this story as Fancy put up with a lot of hogwash from the men in her life. I would have liked for her to put Court Brantley out on his undeserving butt!
