All This and Heaven Too by Rachel Field
Published by Collins London 1968 reprint
'It is the story of a young French governess who became innocently involved first in dissension and scandal in the household of the Duc and Duchesse de Praslin and then in the murder case which rocked French society and echoed throughout the world. From being an obscure governess, Henriette became the most talked-of figure in France. Imprisoned in the Conciergerie and put on trial for complicity in the murder, she showed an unflinching courage and integrity that finally defeated her prosecutors. Set free, she took refuge in the New World, where she at last found release from her sufferings and where she married the Reverend Henry Field, preacher, editor and writer. '
