Book 5: Angélique in Revolt (1961)

n her sudden and illegal departure from France, Angélique did not realize how aroused displeasure of the King, who had let her to imprison and to guard at her Plessis castle in Poitou now. The county is in an uproar and for the Marquise du Plessis-Bellière, there is not too difficult to connect self with other local nobles and peasants and to inflame the revolt against their Sovereign. Between the young noblewoman and the Sovereign, there begins an open fight that will bring many personal losses on her side. The psychological development, through which Angélique passes, again determines more dark atmosphere and anticipates the temporary loss of humor. Instead it, the heroine returns to the power of nature. Angélique will spend the next years in La Rochelle, hiding under a false name, again near the end of the social ladder. The Brittany is a place where remains a strong minority of Huguenots but where are denied many rights to them, and they are forced to convert to Catholicism. Their disputes with the town's leaders are so fierce, that they are forced to leave the country illegally like most other European non-Catholics.
