Well crafted historical thriller set during the religious wars between Catholics and Protestant Huguenots between 1562 and 1572 in and around Carcasonne. Whilst the main characters are fictional, some of the minor ones were real and some of the major incidents described, did happen. ( )

Set in Carcassonne and Toulouse during the 16thC, this is the story of Minou and Piet, one a Catholic and the other a Huguenot. Minou works in her father’s bookshop and one day she receives the mysterious message ‘She knows that you live’. Piet is on a secret mission involving a religious artefact. A chance encounter with one another changes the course of both their lives.

This is a wonderful piece of historical fiction. It’s well researched and beautifully written. The French war between the religions is vividly and powerfully portrayed. There are some strong and courageous characters. All these factors combine to make a gripping, exciting and magnificent tale of love, hate, betrayal. family secrets and adventure. I loved it! ( )

Set during the persecution of Huguenots by Catholics in France in the late 16th century, this novel features Minou Joubert, a bookseller's daughter and a Catholic, who falls in love with Piet Reydon, a Huguenot. Minou's sister Alis plays a role in the the story as do many others, including historical figures and figures imagined by the author. I read this at a rapid pace and found it interesting. I learned a lot about the persecution suffered by the Huguenots and the religious war between Catholic and Protestant. Family secrets, religious relics, corruption, and inquisition themes appear throughout the book. The romance feels secondary to the historical setting which is a good thing for me. ( )

The Burning Chambers takes place in France in the mid to late 1500s. It is the first book in a trilogy about the Huguenot diaspora. This 575 page book seemed to drag on and on. There were endless descriptions of the scenery, homes, inns, shops and clothing. While I was interested in the descriptions, the plot was so slow that I did lose interest in the book over time. I can summarize the book in one sentence: Minou Joubert, the Catholic daughter of a bookseller, and Piet Reydon, a Huguenot, fall in love with each other while hiding a religious relic.

If you like reading about atmosphere, this book is for you. The author gives a fascinating description of the atmosphere of this period in French history. However, if a book has no action, it's a little boring. ( )

Hugenot conflict in France

I love historical fiction. This particular time, the mid 1500's in France, is fraught with terror, persecution by the Inquistion, and the conflict between Catholics and Hugenots. All seen through the eyes of inhabitants of those times, like Minou Joubert a young Catholic woman and a Hugenot convert, Piet Reydon.
The action sweeps from Carcassonne to Toulouse and back.
Underneath the story is the Inquisition's search for a stolen, important relic, and the terror and violence inspired by this organization. And let's not forget the human politicking and ambition.
The Hugenots fled to many countries and it seems this weighty trilogy in the future will take us in some diverse directions.
A series for the committed.
As a story it's somewhat weighty and yet interesting in the telling.
