A Story of Old Holland
Written by Deborah Alcock
Doctor Adrian was a scholar living in quiet seclusion in Antwerp, the Southern Netherlands, until a fugitive Protestant preacher and his daughter Rose sought sanctuary in his house.
Before he realized it, he had become involved with the Protestant cause, and eventually embraced it. When the persecution of Reformed believers became severe, Doctor Adrian and his family made their escape, a dangerous journey to the safety of Leyden, a city of refuge in the Netherlands.
There they, along with Adrian’s sister Marie survived the Siege of Leyden. After the fleets of William of Orange forced the Spanish attackers to withdraw, the refugee family moved on to Utrecht. Doctor Adrian’s faith in the Reformed religion matured when he experienced the loss of loved ones… Age 12 and up.
