From the Back Cover:
Imprisoned for 38 years… 250 years ago this is what happened to Marie Durand, simply because she was a Huguenot.

Marie’s mother died while in prison, her father was imprisoned for more than fourteen years, and her brother Pierre, a well-known Huguenot preacher, was hanged.

For 38 years, Marie Durand herself was held captive near the Rhine River in the Tower of Steadfastness, together with other women. While being held in this tower, Marie Durand was a blessing to others; she cared for the sick, comforted grieving ones, and encouraged those in despair.
