QUEEN OF SWORDS BY SARA DONATI
The baby's trail leads them first to Florida then on to New Orleans, where the three of them become separated. Added to this complication is the 1812 war. The English are converging on the Louisiana coast while Andrew Jackson and his men have poured in from the north, to protect New Orleans.
Amidst the war torn city the three must find each other, save the baby and make their way home. Help is sent to them in the form of Jean-Benoit Savard - a man of French, African, Choctaw and Seminole extraction. Can he work a miracle?
Add in a love story, or two, and a pinch of voodoo and you have a gripping story.
There is now only one more book to read in this series. I'm looking forward to reading it, yet I know I'll miss these people and their stories.
