The Arm and the Darkness by Taylor Caldwell


As hostilities flare between Catholic and Huguenot, Cardinal Richelieu relentlessly pursues the favors of Queen Anne.

The story tells the saga of two brothers, Arsene de Richepin and Monsieur de Rechepin, personal secretary of Cardinal Richelieu.

They represent two opposite worlds which never will meet each other.

The author has a similar style as Dumas in telling some historical facts, the pre-revolutionary ideas of Paul de Vitry and the high price he payed for this, the dramatic Siege of La Rochelle by the french and english people.
