Synopsis

If you have a "Huguenot" ancestor, then this exciting historic novel which bring the reader directly into the trauma faced by the French Protestants in the 1600s.

The first book in the "Huguenot Trilogy" was published in 2007 "Escape to Freedom". The second book, "Follow the Wind", introduces the reader to both new and old characters that readers have enjoyed.

It is 1687. Although a group of Huguenots refugees from Provence have skillfully escaped from France into "free" Switzerland, they are pursued by an avenging troop of disguised French Dragoons determined to assassinate key members of the party.

Feeling helpless, a new character, young Susanne Reyne, watched her family murdered during a "safe" border escape into Switzerland. Now, penniless in Geneva, she is desperate until she recognizes a neighbour from Provence, Pierre Jaubert, in Geneva streets and attempts to seek his aid.

Join the group as, swept by the tidal wave of refugees, they are attacked continuously while searching through Europe - through the cantons of Switzerland, down the Rhine River and eventually ending up into the Netherlands – still searching for a "future".

Here in Holland, the group is both terrified and excited, as fate throws a daring challenge - an offer of farm land and freedom in darkest Africa’s Cape of Good Hope.

Never having been to sea before, the group journey on a small Dutch galleon, the China to the bottom of the world.
