"His Majesty rejects my petition: I must either recant or quit France within twenty-one days."

The Marquis la Force along with his wife and daughter are driven into exile to England. Making a life in a country the complete opposite of France is hard on the La Force family, especially when they hear that their son and brother Louis, still in France, is to be educated in the Roman Catholic religion. Meanwhile Adele la Force is having trouble coping with poverty and her step-mother. This is a story of the Lord strengthening this Huguenot family and keeping them together in spite of persecution and poverty.
