From the Publisher:

In Thomas Torr's time, it is considered treason to translate the Scriptures so that the common people can read them. Thus, when Thomas--an intellectually gifted orphan and ward of a humble farmer--assists John Wycliffe in translating the New Testament into English, he falls under the scrutiny of the Roman church. Offered the chance to make his case for the translation before the Vatican, Thomas accompanies Bishop William Pole to Rome. There, betrayal awaits him, and the beginnings of an incredible adventure. When the last translation he knows of is destroyed, Thomas barely escapes with his life. Hunted by the Roman church and by the evil Pole--a man whose dark secret makes him Thomas's mortal enemy--he returns to England, where further heartbreak awaits him. Felice, the daughter of Thomas's ward and Thomas's true love, has believed him to be dead. Turning for comfort to Kendall Bromley, son of a local official, Felice finds her friendship turning into attraction--and a romantic entanglement with the return of Thomas. Thrown together by fate, Thomas, Kendall, Felice, and Howel, Felice's father, find refuge with a gang of homeless rebels. The story builds to a dramatic climax as Howel is captured and faces execution at the hands of Bromley.

From the Author:
