    A good book!

    The Huguenots in France," written in the 1870s by Samuel Smiles, begins with the revocation of the Edict of Nantes and continues until the time of the French Revolution. While many of the Huguenots fled the country, others suffered incredible persecution at the hands of the crown, the French soldiers, and the church leaders. In spite of this, French Protestantism refused to die. Smiles' book describes in great detail this tragic period in the history of France. Written in a lively and engaging style, Smiles' book is hard to put down once one has started it. In addition to a lengthy overview of the period, which comprises the first half of the book, Smiles gives detailed accounts of the lives of several of those who escaped France and settled in England. In addition, the last part of the book talks about the Vaudois, who were the French Waldensians, and who lived in the rugged Alps of southeastern France. While dating from far before the Reformation and technically not Huguenots, they too were an often persecuted people who nevertheless survived with their identity intact. All in all, this is a most informative book and a great read for anyone with an interest in the history of the Huguenots.
