A much older book, sort of a precursor to the 3 Musketeers, in that in focuses on three brothers (all with women's names, but I guess that's France for you), trying to protect someone and getting caught up in events much larger than they. An interesting read.

Set in the time of Henry of Navarre's wedding to Margaux and St Bartholemew's Day Massacre. Swashbuckling, period romantic adventure. Enjoyable.
