About

Summary

The Fire, the Sword and the Devil is a tale of dark passions, tender love and riveting suspense. Built around major historic events in the period 1520-1548, it is also a tale of tragedy, pain and human triumph.

Marguerite de Navarre, sister of the king of France, first wrote a portion of this tale in her Heptameron. Once every hundred years since the 15th century, the tale of Marguerite de Roberval抯 ordeal on an island off the coast of Labrador has been retold, though seldom in English. This work attempts to answer fictionally historic questions surrounding De Roberval and his niece Marguerite. The historic period presented is at the apex of the Age of Exploration, the Reformation and the Renaissance. It is peopled with historic figures: Rabelais and Francis I, Henry VIII and John Calvin, Cartier and De Roberval, Viceroy of New France.
