5.0 out of 5 stars At last 8 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At last Angelique finds love again.
A warmly written series of books that can be read and re-read and this one is a special one. Everything takes place on board the Goldsboro as they head for Quebec. Anne Golon (under the authorship of Sergeanne Golon) writes in an easy to read way that allows the reader to become easily engrossed in the 17th century. In particular the intricasies of communication between Huguenots and pirates makes for an interesting mix with Angelique and Rescator squaring up to each other. Sometimes just writing a review like this almost belittles the tremendous impact that these books have on fans of this type of fiction as these are far and above other heroine adventures of this type. One of the many books in this series that is screaming out for an updated publication in English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rescators Story 23 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been waiting and waiting to re-read this book, knowing full well that at last many of the secrets of the 5 preceding stories will finally be revealed. Whereas the other 5 books posed all the questions and laid many clues, very few were ever answered - but then, if they had been would we have wanted to read on? The authors were cunning in the way they centred on Angelique - why wouldn't they, she is after all the person named in each book title. But would it not have been just as simple to have had a parallel theme running telling us what was happening with Rescator at the same time - of course not - Rescator? A pirate? to be mentioned in the same breath as a great Lady of Versailles, the Rebel of Poitou? But their lives where running parallel - we first hear of him as the scoundrel who caused Angelique unbearable grief by killing her young son - Cantor. Then he has the unmitigated cheek to outbid the noble Knights of Malta at the Candia slave market for her and then, as if all that is not enough, he turns up in the nick of time when Angelique could really have done with having a man as powerful as her first husband, Joffrey, had been around - to get her and her friends away from the shores of La Rochelle to some safe haven. Instead it is to Rescator that Angelique has to go and beg for help, if she'd had a powerful husband she would merely have needed to express the whim - hang on! If she'd still got a rich and powerful husband she wouldn't be there would she? I love the way the authors tangle me up in knots - so, as has already been revealed in previous reviews, at last we are given the confirmation that Rescator - is indeed Joffrey. As the story unfolds, we the readers, are priveliged to get an insight into his past and all the parallels drawn are credible without ever going over the top. Even the near "miraculous" disappearance of his most obvious feature - the limp. But there is more here than just Rescators' story - there is bewilderment. On Angeliques side, that the one and only thing that had kept her going was her burning love for a man she had only known for such a short time, by whom she'd had two sons and who had snatched from her before the love had had an opportunity to develop into something even more meaningful, had suddenly been manifsted before her and she had not even recognised him!. At the same time, having revealed his alter ego to her - she, who believes him to have to be responsible for the death of their younger son, is unable to tell him what she believes he has done. He on the other side, despite having spies everywhere and kept up with her movements, knows only the factual aspects of what has been happening to her, and looks at them as they are presented to him on face value, not knowing nor seemingly wishing to understand her deep-rooted reasons for what had been happening to her. Gradually, all but a few are painfully eked out, but how like a man, Rescator now chooses to stand accuser instead of accused. There are moments when I want to shake him (just to get him to wake up and see the truth!), but I get my satisfaction the moment, just for once the self-assurred Count Joffrey de Peyrac de Morens d'Irristru gets his - a slap on the face from Angelique after revealing that both sons are alive and well having witheld this information from her with no good reason as far as I can see and having to beg her forgiveness for his intransience. The finding of her sons comes as a surprise, but again a totally believable one and so the authors spin their magic again. The one child they cannot bring back is the tragic heir to the Plessis estate - Charles-Henri and no amount of reasoning by Florimond can make it possible - but there is a new link - the first-born of the settlers is, at their request, name by "Dame Angelique" - she chooses to name the child Charles-Henri. In the closing chapters of the book, the newly re-formed Peyrac family, including Honorine, begin their journey inland. The closing words of the final paragraph bring a serenity that almost heralds the end of this adventure. Indeed it is the end of one chapter in all their lives that of - the Old World and now the adventure begins in the New World - what do they say - that a monarch never dies? The King is dead! Long Live the King! The Peyracs of the Old World are dead! Long live the Peyracs of the New World.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most satisfying books in a superb series 28 Jun 2000
By Steve Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A small, overcrowded square-rigger, manned by a crew of renegades and carrying an unexpected load of Hugenaut refugees fleeing the persecutions of Louis XIV's France, battles through the late Autumn waves of the Atlantic on the perilous voyage to the New World.
This claustraphobic environment is the setting for one of the most satisfying books in the magnificent Angelique series. On a vessel seething with unregulated emotions, Angelique is caught between her regard for Maitre Berne, her master and friend among the La Rochelle Protestants whom she has helped to escape from the king's dragoons, and her fascination for the enegmatic Rescator, pirate and renegade who had bought her for a king's ransom in the slave markets of Candia, only to see her escape into further perils.
What is the secret that links Angelique, once desired by the king, now a battered fugitive, and the renegade?
As tensions mount between the God-fearing refugees and their rough and ready saviours Rescator's secret is revealed - too late to halt the mutiny that shatters lives and places every one in the vessel in mortal peril.
Anne Golon's art in setting an entire book on board a tiny ship, her interplay of characters and exposition of human emotions makes this a classic book that demands you keep reading until the last, truly satisfying, page is turned.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book of a Great Series 10 Jan 1998
By Harvey J. Adkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the follow-on to "Angélique in Revolt," our heroine finds herself traveling to the New World aboard the ship of the pirate, Rescator. It is no surprise to the reader by this time that Rescator is actually Angélique's long-lost husband, Joffrey de Peyrac. The enjoyment of this book is in seeing the couple attempt to reconcile their complex feelings for each other. Of the entire superb Angélique series, this book is my personal favorite. Anne Golon gets into the heads of both men and women in this most introspective book. It is maybe the only romantic novel I can think of which is told with equal clarity and strength from the point of view of both the man and the woman. One of the best books I have ever read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest love story of all time. 26 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In 1970, as a teenager, I first read Angelique. I have all 9 paperbacks and reread them every year. (Yes, 28 times) Each time (though Lord knows I know exactly what is in store) I sob when the Recscator reveals himself and later when she sees the "native boys" riding the waves. To catagorize this series as "Romance" ignores the wealth of research of Serge and Anne Golon as well as their insight into the dynamics of a remarkable couple in remarkable times. Whenever I face hard times, I reach for Angelique and lose myself in the her world, her challenges, heartbreak, determination and courage and take on the world with her relentless green-eyed determination. I automatically search the "Romance" section...find the "G's" and hope for one more adventure. If there are more after Angelique and the Ghosts, would someone PLEASE translate and publish them! What happens in Quebec? What happens after that, and after that? I would love to see the films based on Angelique series, are they available? I wrote a reasearch paper recently on the Leading Ladies of Versailles...de la Valliere, Montespan and Maintenon. Without Sergeanne Golon's Angelique de Sance de Monteloup, de Peyrac, du Plessis-Blliere, de Peyrac, the greatest of them all, I would have never known the world of Louis XIV and experienced the joy of studying this amazing century. Long live Angelique!

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelique in Love 13 Dec 1999
By AL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The beautiful saga continues. Angelique is finally united to her husband, the love of her life, however, this is no fairytale. The Golons again bring to light the struggles of the human heart to overcome what life so often crushes. In their grippling tradition, the authors keep you on edge from cover to cover. Simply marvelous!
