Praise for Her Own Legacy

This delightful first installment made my inner history geek giddy with excitement. Set in France in 1786, the book opens with Grandmaman telling her granddaughter, Joliette, that “wine flows in your veins” but one doesn’t have to get too far into the book before noticing that author Debra Borchert has a love of French history flowing through hers!

With an equally eloquent and dynamic tone, the novel is an immersive piece of historical fiction —both thorough and concise in historical detail—which stands up against other works of this storied time. Charming, gracefully written, with moments of true excitement, Borchert’s historical work is a marvel.

Independent Review of Books

I’m in awe of the amount of research the author did to write this book and depict the setting of the story a little before, during and after the French Revolution, you feel like you are a spectator in a first row of history.

I enjoyed this novel immensely, and I can’t wait for Borchert’s next book in the Château de Verzat series! This book is for history buffs of any era and for those of us who enjoy complex, poignant love stories.

This was a beautifully done book in the French Revolution, I enjoyed the plot of the book and thought it was wonderfully done and works in this time-period. I look forward to more from Ms. Borchert.

I LOVED this book. Taking place in pre-Revolutionary court, both in Paris at and the court of Versailles, this was super atmospheric. The descriptions of the vineyard, court life, and Paris were so vivid that I felt like I was there.
