Abstract

The arrival of Calvinism in France split families. This historic novel chronicles how the split shattered Aymer and Almeric Dornat and the rest of their family. Almeric remains faithful to the Catholic Faith and the king. Aymer becomes a Calvinist and fleeing to England with what remains of the family after a raid led by his brother leads to the death of their father. Both sides of the family suffer as political forces use the brothers as pawns in the larger conflict. Both brothers end up at sea, but one has success while the other suffers ignominiously.

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include Fort Caroline/Fort San Mateo, one of the pre-Castillo de San Marcos forts, and Matanzas Inlet.
