Huguenot Garden is a children's story of the daily and adventurous episodes in the lives of Renee and Albret Martineau, young twin sisters in a seventeenth-century, French Protestant family.
The episodes follow the twins and the rest of the Martineau family as they work, worship, commune, and suffer persecution together.
The story aims to portray the ideas and historical details common to Huguenot life in La Rochelle, France, 1685, a tragic year whose final quarter brought the full wrath of Louis XIV. For children five and up.
"Rich with details from the calamitous days of the Reformation in seventeenth-century France, the story opens our eyes to the personal passions and the human sacrifices that were necessary to enliven the principles of liberty...Read this inspiring story aloud to your children. Then, read it again all by yourself."
