In Search of Honor

by Donnalynn Hess

This one's a tale set in the French Revolution. It's the story of Jacques Chénier, the son of a sculptor. His father is killed by a French nobleman, an event which fills Jaques' heart with hatred and his mother's with despair. Other events give Jacques more reason to be angry. When the revolution comes, he then has the opportunity to settle accounts. Will he seek revenge? Or might he take a more honorable road? Overall it's a good enough story, but it lacks the drama, liveliness or character to raise itself above simple waiting room material.
