  • Devil's Blue

  • Excerpt:

    Toulouse 1552. The young Sophie discovers a world of fraud and corruption behind her father's successful trade in pastel, a blue pigment. When she rebels against her imminent forced marriage, she is the one who is hit hardest. Far away from her family, she discovers the world of the plant from which her father’s precious blue pigment was extracted and thinks of a plan to return to Toulouse. But there the increased tension between Catholics and Protestants has dramatic results for the trade. Will the devil’s blue drive father and daughter apart, or will they – in the end – be able to distinguish good from evil?
