Summary

Set in the days of the religious wars of Europe, St. Bartholomew’s Eve is the tale of the Huguenot’s desperate fight for freedom of worship in France. As the struggle intensifies the plot thickens, culminating in the dreadful Massacre of St. Bartholomew’s Eve. Henty, “The Boy’s Own Storyteller” weaves the life and adventures of Philip Fletcher and his cousin, Francois DeLaville, into the historical background with thrilling battles, sieges and escapes along the way (not to mention a fair damsel in distress!).

Reviews

Very good ,clear reading

Daniel Maddux

- Good voice, poor pronounciation

Really good energy in her voice. I appreciate her work. However, the fact that she didn't seem to have any idea how to pronounce many of the names, especially the French ones, almost drove me bonkers. I still haven't gotten over "Perry" for "Pierre".
