3.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't live up to her previous offerings
I was entrapped by Ms Feather's previous submission in this trilogy, unfortunately this offering was a sorry conclusion.
The characters lacked that certain omph that I have come to regard as typically Feather.
It's not bad but I expected more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great historial romance, 21 Dec 1997

This review is from: Emerald Swan (Mass Market Paperback)
King Henry of Navarre is proud of the fact that he is to marry Margaret, the sister of the French King Charles. This marriage was supposed to unite France in the middle of the sixteenth century, but instead is used as an evening to destroy the Huguenots. In Paris, mobs roam the city and one group murders Lady Elenor Albard. When her spouse finds her corpse, he only sees one of their twin infants girls. He assumes the other is dead.
Two decades later, Elenor's cousin, the Earl of Harcourt, Gareth, travels to France to offer a deal with King Henry, who has Paris under siege. The two noblemen agree that Gareth's charge, Maude (Elenor's surviving daughter) will marry Henry. On his way back to his English home, Gareth stops to watch a young acrobat perform. He learns her name is Miranda and is amazed how much she looks like Maude. Gareth, who worries about Maude's reaction to Henry, offers Miranda an opportunity to make some money by(if necessary) impersonating her look alike. Miranda accepts the offer, but to the amazement of the pair, they fall in love. However, if Maude fails to cooperate with the disguised Henry, Miranda and Gareth will not have to worry about their own relationship since their lives will be forfeit.
When it comes to historical romance, Jane Feather is a heavy weight as she can be depended upon to scribe a fabulous tale. Her latest novel, The EMERALD SWAN is an enthralling story that brings alive sixteenth century France and England to the enjoyment of Ms. Feather's myriad of fans. The lead and secondary characters are all well written and what could have been a trite story line turns into an exhilarating read that will be cherished by the fans of the sub-genre.
