    I read this book in an afternoon. It begins with a Huguenot family being required to return to the Roman Catholic church. On their refusal, the father is sentenced to the galleys for life. Shortly thereafter, the young daughter is taken from her mother, supposedly to be educated in a Catholic home. The mother dies within two years of this, and the story revolves around the son, John. He is 16 years of age, and his negligence of the Mass is about to have him sent to a monastery for re-education. I read this book in an afternoon.

John encounters adventure as he tries to avoid detection and remain true to Christ. The story never lags for interest, and children and adults will enjoy it.

    The author of this book is a member of my church! He is from Holland originally and suffered greatly during World War 2. The story is interesting but the English is a bit awkward. I don't know the history of the book but I suspect that it was written in Dutch and subsequently translated to English. It is factually correct and makes a good history lesson for children and adults on a portion of reformed Christian history that is not well known.

    My kids, ages 11 & 7 loved this book, and learned some new (old) vocabulary, since this is a historical fictional book. Now they know what Huguenots were, and they understand more about persecution plus geography, since the book character had to flee to another country to avoid being forced to become a Monk. They found out on their own that there are more books in this series and asked me if we could read them. I'd say that's reading success.

    A book found in the library at the mission house in Togo. One that is geared towards young teenagers. Interesting, though.
