En nos vertes annéesEn nos vertes années by Robert Merle

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 

This is the second volume of the Fortune de France series.

 

Merle has a particular way to portray the French history which makes the plot flows naturally.

 

In this volume, the author covers the period of 1563 to 1567, when peace still exists between catholics (papists) and protestants (huguenots).

 

The brothers Pierre de Siorac and Samson are sent to Montpellier in order to study medicine. In the meantime, a new bloody civil war erupts which calls what is coming next, St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre.

 

The sequel of this book is Paris, ma bonne ville.
