Standing with her beloved Huguenots, Jeanne steps onto the battlefield of history during the tumultuous years of the Reformation (1517-1559).

Review quote

Wings Like a Dove takes us into the turbulent Reformation times of sixteenth century France. Author Christine Farenhorst has skillfully woven accurate details of setting and character and issues of faith into a compelling account of the life of Jeanne d'Albret, Queen of Navarre. From childhood onward we are shown sovereign God's equipping of Jeanne for her role as a Deborah who stepped forward when others quailed. John Calvin, William Farel, Philip II - these and many others are met in this tale. Read and be instructed, be sobered, be inspired.--Clifford Van Dyken, teacher, Heritage Christian School, Jordan Station, Ontario
