SKU ‎ 9781596387638


Heroes and History


Philippe, an orphan shipwright apprentice in sixteenth-century France, is perplexed by the intense religious conflict raging about him. While his friends Maurice and Sophie cling to the good news proclaimed by the church Reformers, Philippe has not yet been persuaded to abandon the teachings of the state church in which he was raised. The gospel sounds liberating at times, but can he risk believing when persecution and bloodshed inevitably follow? As Huguenot communities are massacred and full-scale warfare breaks over France, Philippe must decide once and for all where his loyalties lie. The choices he and his friends make in these violent times may cost them everything.

  • "The summer of 2013 I was pleased to meet Douglas Bond in my village, La Roque sur Cèze, in Provence. He was working on his next book dealing with the religious and tragic events which occurred in this part of France a few centuries ago. One reason (among many others) for Douglas's talent as a novelist is his immediate ability to feel and to give back the particular atmosphere of our villages as well as the temper of their inhabitants (Cévennes, Ardèche, Provence). In this precious book, authenticity oozes on every page, with a clever use of French colloquial expressions, thanks to his great literary abilities. In Hammer of the Huguenots, readers will discover and learn more about the tragedy which divided French people a few centuries ago. Thank you, Douglas, for your wonderful work!"--Gérard Mignard, Agrégé de l'Université, Docteur es Lettres
