What Type of book Historic Fiction

Describe the main Character: Philip is the son of an English Yeoman and a French Huguenot lady who fled to England. Philip went to France when 16 to Visit Francois De Laville. While he was there the Second Huguenot war Broke out he Fought in most of the battles in that war. When it ended he went back to England to see his Father and Mother. He returned and went on some visits with his cousin. He went to Paris with the Admiral and was there at the time of the massacre of St. Bartholomew’s eve. He went through the siege of La Rochelle he then went back to England.

I learned that the king of France almost joined Holland.


I really liked the battles

I didn’t like when Philip had to rescue his cousin.

I wonder why the king listened to his mother.

I would recommend this book because it is exciting history.
