Struggle for Freedom Series 1
Martin's parents have been taken prisoner and are locked up in the village tower for professing their Reformed Faith. Now Martin was alone with Casper
the peddler, whom he hardly knew.
The sheriff and the officers of the inquisition who had taken Martin's parents captive, vowed to return later in the day to look for him.
What was he to do? It was impossible to free his parents, or was it?
What if they caught him as well? Would he have to flee the country? Then he remembered the family
friend Boudewyn, who was also of the Reformed faith. Not only was he a clever, good-natured blacksmith,
he was also very big and strong. It was to this man that he must turn for help.
This book describes the plight of a Reformed Christian family during the Roman Catholic persecution in the 16th century
in the Netherlands.
