In this second volume of the series, the French history of the continent is expanded to tell the story of the Huguenots. As in volume 1, some of the early history is an accurate portrayal of the Huguenot exodus from France. Theirs is a story worth telling. But this is also a work of fiction -- in this case a description of the growing conflict between their values and the values of the Catholic north. Threading its way through the story of that growing conflict is another story - the story of how history is made and remade to serve contemporary interests. Maybe the truest story in this volume is that final story of history remanufactured and manipulated for political ends.
