Item description for Daughter Of Silk (Silk House V1) by Linda Lee Chaikin...

A young silk heiress is caught in the dangerous tide of French history during the reign of the evil Queen Mother, Catherine de Medici. Uncovering a diabolical plot, Rachelle joins forces with the handsome rebel Marquis Fabien de Vendome, but will they be in time?

Publishers Description
Pursuing the family name as the finest silk producer in Lyon, the young Huguenot Rachelle Dushane-Macquinet is thrilled to accompany her famous couturier Grandmere to Paris, there to create a silk trousseau for the Royal Princess Marguerite Valois.The Court is magnificent; its regent, Catherine de Medici, deceptively charming ... and the circumstances, darker than Rachelle could possibly imagine. At a time in history when the tortures of the Bastille and the fiery stake are an almost casual consequence in France, a scourge of recrimination is moving fast and furious against the Huguenots---and as the Queen Mother's political intrigues weave a web of deception around her, Rachelle finds herself in imminent danger.Hope rests in warning the handsome Marquis Fabien de Vendome of the wicked plot against his kin. But to do so, Rachelle must follow a perilous course.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daughter Of Silk (Silk House V1)?

Excellent Book, BUT DON'T READ THIS SERIES!  Feb 2, 2010
The first 3 books are really engaging and make you question whether you would have the strength to stand up for your faith in the face of extreme persecution. The plot is engaging, although I fault the editors for not catching obvious errors and typos. Honestly, there were points in the book where i asked myself, "Did ANYONE at Zondervan care enough to read the series and correct obvious typos."

I also liked that the hero and heroine of this series were not your typical Christian romance wimps. I really cared about both of these characters and enjoyed the progression of their story. In addition, the history and interplay between the French Protestants, the French Royal family, and the Spanish inquisition is fascinating. Reading the first 3 books, this series was worthy of 4 stars (5 if the editors had bothered to do their job). However, I would not recommend you read this series.

WHY WOULD I RECOMMEND YOU NOT READ BOOKS THAT I OBVIOUSLY ENJOYED? Because the author does not finish the series/story. Yes, you heard me right. There are only 3 books written in what was to be a 4 part series. The end of Book 3 ends with a huge climax and a promise of Book 4 coming the following year. Like other readers, I rushed to this site to buy the fourth novel, only to discover that there IS NO BOOK 4 and never will be. I emailed and personally confirmed that there would be no book 4 with the author. Apparently the publisher and author decided not to finish the series, but only after book 3 was written.

I emailed the author, and she told me in 3 sentences the larger plot resolutions that would have occurred if she had finished book 4. While it was nice of her to let me know what would have happened, what a huge let down given the investment of time, money, and energy that I invested in the first 3 books. Imagine if Tolkien had concluded his series with an "if I had written Return of the King, Frodo would have destroying the ring, Arwen and Aragorn wed, and Sauron would have been destroyed." Yep, you would have been ticked too.

I fault Zondervan even more however. I get the distinct impression that Zondervan chose not to pursue a book 4 for financial reasons. While that is their choice, how dare Zondervan mislead it readers by implying that this is a complete series. When these 3 books were purchased, Zondervan sold them as the house of silk trilogy. I personally am appalled that a christian publishing company would sell an incomplete and unfinished series to its readers by false pretenses. Trust me, it does not end with a "they likely lived happily ever after" or any sense of finality. Book 3 ends with question of whether our hero and heroine will escape from the peril they've been facing since the beginning of book 1, and if they do escape, what will become of them and their future. For Zondervan to continue to sell this incomplete series is a betrayal of its reader's trust. At the VERY least, they should publish an ebook concluding the series.

Bottom line: Don't get sucked into this enchanting series. You'll be disappointed and angry when you reach the end of book 3.
The Silk House Series  Feb 9, 2009
After reading all three books, i was wanting to dive into Book 4 which has not been written. Chaiken does an unbelievable job of writing historical novels. This series takes place in France when the Protestant reformation is in serious conflict with the Catholic Church. I felt like I had had a collage history class as well as a great read. Chaiken's characters come alive on the written page.
An incredible look into history robed in romance and intrigue  Jan 6, 2009
I am a huge fan of Chaikin-- her ability to weave history with fiction in an accurate yet enthralling manner is unmatched.

This series is fabulous. It makes you realize how we take our religious freedome for granted. Set in France during the time of the Hugenots, this series is full of everyting a good novel should be-- murder, intrigue, passion-- learning about a different time and place has never been so enjoyable.

If you want to know what our protestant ancestors went through to allow us to have Bibles in a language we understand then pick up this book. You won't be disappointed.

This book will have your heart racing and palms sweating at times. At others your eyes will well and your heart will fill.
Religious historical romance  Jan 2, 2009
Like all good historical fiction this book makes you understand better what happened in its time frame.
In this case what it was like to be a protestant in the Catholic France at the time of the persecution. I frankly got more interested in the history of Catherine de Medici, her children, and the religious turmoil than in the romance which is pretty run of the mill, but the book is quite interesting, a good read.
Nice Plot, Agonizing French  Jan 1, 2009
At the time I read this, I was a French 1 student. I could pick out the grammar issues even then. For example, it's supposed to be mon amie in the feminine form, not m'amie. I found this really irritating. If you can overlook the grammar, this book has a wonderful, suspenseful plot.
