As smugglers, Tom Barton and his uncle Jack are used to breaking the law. With quick wits and secret cargo holds, they manage to avoid discovery and to make a comfortable living — until William Tyndale asks them to carry precious English Bibles along with their usual cargo. Getting caught with Bibles could cost them their freedom, or even their lives, but Uncle Jack is willing to take the risk for a share in the profits. Tom, however, has misgivings about the entire operation. Who is Herbert Belsey and why is he following them? As enemy after enemy rises to oppose Tyndale’s Bible translation, Tom is confronted with a choice between what he wants and what he knows to be true. Newbery Award–winning author Scott O’Dell describes a young sailor’s encounter with God and with His servant William Tyndale. This fictional account depicts the spiritual darkness of England before the Reformation.
