"Josef . . . the servant, ye know," said Jeannot, "told us how the soldiers of Captain Brunaulieu's corps, as they came to a halt outside the town, found amongst them a boy who was evidently a Genevan. They seized him, and brought him to the Captain. He said he was an Englishman, which, I suppose, is another kind of heretic . . . oh, I crave pardon of your Worthinesses . . ."

Deborah Alcock (1835-1913) was born and raised in Ireland during the years of the potato famine, as the daughter of John Alcock, a clergyman of the Reformed Church of England and Ireland. Her books contain very accurate details of church history in story form and belong to the best historical fiction ever written.
