What begins as a matchmaking scheme on the part of the king turns into an assignment like none Antoine has experienced before. Antoine must decide what is right, at a time when choosing right could mean great loss, including his life. Could Louise be a Huguenot spy? Who is this Matthew Maury? And if his kingâ€™s commands go against Godâ€™s, what will Antoine choose? Set against the opulent world of Versailles, The Huguenot depicts the contrasts of wealth and poverty. Although the details of the story are fiction, it is based on factual information involving the first Crockett in the lineage of the famous frontiersman, Davy Crockett.
