Exiled immerses the reader in the dark days of 17th century England, and time when a man could be drawn and quartered for nothing more than standing on a corner preaching his views. There is no freedom of speech, of assembly, of the press, or of religion. Non-conforming ministers are hunted down, brought to trial, made to suffer public humiliation, sometimes torture, and oft' times imprisonment.
Reverend John Lathrop's story gives the reader an inside look at what those who believed in freedom of conscience faced and not just them, but their families too. Haunted by realities of cruel laws, unspeakable consequences, and acute moral dilemmas, how does one reconcile duty to family and duty to God when one is at the expense of the other? When tyranny creeps and is emboldened and threatens conscience, what does a Christian disciple do?
