Editorial Reviews

Review

“Rarely does anyone, let alone a reviewer, wish that a book were twice its length, but this one is so informative, balanced and crisply written that it leaves the reader hungry for more.”  —Bernard Levin

“The best survey of the Huguenots in England—a significant work of scholarship and a work easily accessible to the general reader. This new, significantly updated, edition is welcomed.”  —English Historical Review

Format: Paperback
In my research of my French Huguenot ancestors the discovery of Robin Gwynn's book was the high point - a treasure. This book is concise, well-organized and written in elegant prose. It illuminated and enriched my understanding of that part of our history. I could hardly put it down.

For others who are researching Huguenot ancestors who first settled in Colonial South Carolina, I also recommend Arthur H. Hirsch's THE HUGUENOTS OF COLONIAL SOUTH CAROLINA, University of South Carolina Press. This second book, while not as concise, elegant or well illustrated; is the best source I have found on its subject.

This book is easy to read and follow how the Huguenots survived through all the persecution of the Catholic church, both in France and England..
