Read by Anna Christensen

(4.7 stars; 57 reviews)

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! ).

(5 stars)

Exciting Story, Well-Read

(5 stars)

This book would be difficult to read in print version for a non-French speaker due to the numerous French names. The reader pronounced them beautifully and and gave different inflection and tone to the many characters. Thank you for this great contribution to making an important piece of literature more accessible!
