The Refugees The Refugees

A Tale of Two Continents

by Conan Doyle, A.

The book is a fast-paced, exciting historical novel filled with daring and adventure. The revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 put the lives of French protestants, called Huguenots, at risk. Louis De Catinat and his cousin decide to escape this religious persecution by fleeing from France. Aboard a merchant vessel they attempt to reach North America but find themselves stranded on an iceberg. The result is a hazardous trek through Canadian forests, avoiding both loyal French settlers and Indian tribes, in search for a community where freedom of religion would return stability to their lives. Ages 12 and up.
