Additional Information

Thirteenth-century France: Bridget has grown up mastering the mystical gifts of her ancestor, Mary Magdalene, whose unbroken female lineage has kept a legacy of wisdom alive for a thousand years. But the all-powerful Catholic Church has sworn to destroy Bridget for using her healing talents and supernatural abilities. Her duty to continue the bloodline leads her into the arms of Raoul de Mountvallant - a Catholic. But when the Church's savage religious intolerance causes Raoul to turn rebel, a terrible vengeance is exacted. As war rages on, it is the children of these passionate souls, Magda and Dominic, who must strive to preserve the ancient knowledge for future generations...

I have no idea why this book is listed in two different places on Amazon. But it is, so here is my review, which can also be found on the other "Daughters of the Grail" page.

I maintain that Dan Brown, who wrote the Da Vinci Code, got all his ideas from this book. Not that's bad, since this a great book with many intriguing ideas. I just wish everyone who was so thrilled with the Da Vinci Code would read this for comparison...

This book tells the story of Bridget, who is a descendent of Mary Magdalene and Jesus' brother, and is living in southern France in the 1200's.

Bridget knows she must have a daughter to carry on her line. She chooses a man, Raoul de Montvallant, who is all ready married to father her child. They have one night of passion and Bridget moves on to give birth to a girl, Magda. Meanwhile, Raoul's wife Claire is captured by Simon... Read more
This was too slow for me. I gave up halfway thru, yet still waiting for the heroine, Bridget and the hero, Raoul, to "hook up" so to speak. Thus, the romance was slow to start up. Also, I found the action overall disappointing compared to Chadwick's others, namely The Love Knot and The Marsh King's Daughter. There is war and talk of religion and little else. What killed the whole story more for me than anything tho was Bridget's "healing powers." Supposedly a descendant of Mary Magdalene, she is able to simply put her hands upon people and heal them. Had she been a midwife, I would have found the story a lot more plausible and as a result, more enjoyable than a woman that can see the future and conjure fire. As usual, however,... Read more
