SENSE OF TOUCH
Readers who love their romantic fiction intertwined with real-life figures from history will find Sense of Touch to be a most compelling read. The touching love story between the protagonists gives an interesting glimpse into court life in France in the late 15th century. The fictional heroine is well drawn and a formidable counterpart to Anne of Brittany.
Nicole St. Sylvain comes to the court of Anne of Brittany, queen consort of France, as one of her maids of honour, and to prepare for her own eventual marriage. As courtier, she meets and falls in love with stable hand and healer Philippe de Bois. Torn between her obligation to her queen and the desires of her heart, she will need to be courageous and bold to finally breach the gap between duty and happiness.
