Where the Light Falls:A Novel of the French Revolution

Allison Pataki

Where the Light Falls follows two men during the French Revolution. Jean-Luc St. Clair is an eager idealistic lawyer. Capt. Andre Valiere is a former aristocrat whose father was sent to the guillotine. Valiere's military involvement is the only thing that kept him from the same fate. When the noble General Kellerman is brought up on charges of being a Pro-Loyalist, St. Clair takes the case and Valiere becomes a character witness. They are up against the same prosecutor who sent Valiere's father to his death. Now the two must decide whether to flee Paris or face possible execution themselves.
