He chooses exile to England. The daughter, Adele, resents the change, as well as her English stepmother. She obeys, but rebelliously, especially when they discover that her dear brother will not be allowed to join them. As the heir of the estate, he is being re-educated as a Catholic to serve the king. The story chronicles his non-compliance, as well as the hardships his family encounter in their new life in England. Adele writes her cousin in France, who has converted back to Catholicism to find a match among the French nobility. Adele's rebellious spirit is seen, although she does love her stepmother. When the news that her brother Louis is arrested after aiding the escape of a Huguenot pastor, she runs off into a snowstorm. The story has a happy ending for all the faithful characters, although the worldling cousin pays the ultimate price for her own way. There are hard decisions to be made, and this book is an encouragment to stand fast in the Lord, no matter the consequences.

    I found this to be a decent story based on the trials the French Huguenots had to go through, for being Christians. I thought the story was a bit short and rushed at the end but found myself enjoying it regardless.
