This novel can be read fully in a day or two....it is a wonderful product. I imagine it could be read to one's kids or grandkids as a nitetime story!
Sir Auther C. Doyle of "Sherlock Holmes" fame is a very very talented writer. Much research went into this novel and the reading shows the worth of it.
It's a heck of a book about France and the Americas with villians, heroes, kings, queens, ladies, ship captains, Indians, churchmen, and all the rest of the era's cast of characters.
Sir A.C. Doyle hit the nail on the head with this one! A great read!

Fighting Indians in the Canadian wilderness, this has it all. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is far more

Great Transaction - would do business with again

Well researched, excellently written historical fiction. This book is quite lengthy for a Conan Doyle novel. The thread throughout the novel is the experiences, adventures, travels, joys, trials and tribulations of a family of three Huguenots (father, daughter, nephew) and their American friend, first in 17th century France, and then in the French owned provinces of Canada on the American frontier. The first two-thirds of the book is set primarily in the Versailles court of Louie XIV where the Huguenot nephew is a fast-rising, well-respected young captain in the king's guards, and in Paris in the home of the Huguenot father, a wealthy cloth merchant, and his daughter, who is in love with her cousin. The author has clearly done much research and provides many historically accurate details of court life and intrigues, while keeping the story fast moving and interesting even for those of us ignorant of this era and setting. The first part of the book ends with Louie's revocation of the Edict of Nance, which had assured French Huguenots of political and religious freedom. The second part of the book takes place primarily on the French Canadian frontier, with the three Huguenots in the company of their American friend having fled France barely ahead of French military authorities. Their initial destination was the English colonies, specifically Boston and New York, but because of a misadventure in the crossing, they are briefly stranded on an iceberg and picked up by a French ship transporting the new governor to Canada. From Quebec the refugees travel southward by river and land through a frontier filled with warring Iroquois and followed by an obsessive Franciscan priest who is determined to have the Huguenot daughter and nephew (now husband and wife) returned to France, the elderly Huguenot father/uncle having died soon after arriving in Canada. The travel south is full of frontier adventures more dangerous even than those at Versailles' court. The story ends a bit abruptly for my taste, but the author includes interesting and informative historical after-notes that bring the whole to a satisfying conclusion. I am tempted to give this novel a 5-star rating. It certainly is a very, very high 4-star.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, best remembered as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, produced an excellent historical drama with The Refugee, a story about the Huguenots. Although Doyle wasn't a Christian, he writes with a great deal of sympathy as he describes the plight of French Protestants in the late 17th century.

The courage and resolution of the Hugenots was legendary as the majority went into exile rather than recant their evangelical faith in Christ. Consequently, they lost family, friends, property, and employment. It's a cruel chapter in France's history.

The novel begins in France but finishes in Canada. Along the way we visit the inner sanctum of King Louis' palace, travel through the ice-berg infested waters of the north Atlantic sea, and journey in the wilderness of New France.

Doyle also wrote The Tragedy of the Korosko,: And the Green Flag, and Other Stories of War and Sport,

Both adults and young adults, especially those of Huguenot descent, will love this classic adventure story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The reader will coincidently learn a great amount of good history while racing through through the book's imaginative scenes of traveling to Canada. The main characters are stranded on an ice floe, attacked by Indians, and hunted by an unpleasant Jesuit.

Courage and bravery, derring-do and a sense of honor characterize not only the featured Huguenot family, but also woodsmen, soldiers, a crippled Catholic priest and an Iroquois woman married to a Frenchman.

Great story.
