Product Overview

And you thought history was boring? Imagine being jailed, or your home burned to the ground, your family killed, your property destroyed-just because you believed in a different religion. Imagine having to hide any evidence of your true beliefs-or perish. History does repeat itself. Flax to Freedom is a glimpse of the life and times of French Huguenots living in France at the height of religious oppression in the 1600s. This is a fictionalized account based on historical facts that surround Charles Germaine, a distant ancestor of the author. He was a Huguenot who was captured and held in La Tremblade Prison in France because of his Protestant beliefs. He escaped and fled to America. This is a story of how his escape may have been orchestrated. Flax to Freedom is a fascinating story for readers of all ages. It will be of special interest to adults who trace their ancestry back to the French Huguenots who settled in New Paltz and other locations along the Hudson River in the 1600s.
