From Reader Views Reviews
“Christine Sunderland has given readers a great read in the second book of her trilogy. This is a fast-paced novel with great historical detail, drama and loss.
Jack Seymour at the age of twelve witnessed his father’s death and never got over the trauma. His marriage to Madeleine is wonderful and he seems to be happy with the way his life is going… (but) he has only six months to live. Dr. DuPres has fled the country (and) Jack and Madeleine fly to France to find her.
The author takes us through the beauty of France, visiting historical sites along the way . . . Her vivid descriptions of churches, villages and the power of miracles are breathtaking. This is a book that is fast-paced and full of drama. Readers won’t be able to put down Offerings by Christine Sunderland.”
