Flowers of Languedoc, the 6th book in the Philip Devalle series is now being published and will be out soon!
''Well researched novel'' '
Praise for Judith Thomson for writing such a well-researched novel. She combines a flair for dialogue with painstaking historical research. I especially enjoyed the depiction of Louis, the Sun King, and his brother Monsieur. A good read.

A great read following Philip Devalle, part English and part French, during the late seventeenth century. I really enjoyed the characters portrayed within the book and felt them to be lifelike, dealing with aspects such as war.
The story is well written and researched - the history is fantastic. I will certainly be looking out for more books by Judith Thomson.
