Description

Suzanne de l'Orme's Huguenot family is under severe persecution as are other Protestants in the nation of France. The 1500's are a difficult time to be alive if you are unwilling to compromise.



Sent on an errand by her mother twelve year old Suzanne walks into an adventure that she fears she will never walk out of. Kidnapped by the authorities for being the child of a bible believing family Suzanne is interrogated and persecuted. If she will only disown her faith and her people she can be released from her prison and welcomed into the 'freedom' of the Roman Catholic Church.



It is soon apparent that Suzanne will not give in and she is taken from the relative safety of the abbey to become a slave for a local farmer's family. Still refusing to discard her faith Suzanne's faith strengthens and grows through her struggles.



Will this captivity be the end for the young girl or will this adventure end with a new beginning for Suzanne's life.
