Wings Like a Dove
The Courage of Queen Jeanne d’Albret
Born in 1528, Jeanne d’Albret is the only daughter of the King and Queen of Navarre. Standing with her beloved Huguenots, Jeanne steps onto the battlefield of history during the tumultuous Reformation (1517-1559). As deadly political events swirl around her tiny kingdom of Navarre, Queen Jeanne is forced to choose between serving Christ or succumbing to the world.
Will she help the oppressed and persecuted Christians, or will she deliver her own life?
The Chosen Daughters series highlights the lives of ordinary women who, by God’s grace, accomplish extraordinary things. This is the first of the set.
