Sarah Pointz is the daughter of an English merchant who operates a shipping business from Belgium in 1535. Her father is interested in the ideas of William Tyndale who believes the Bible should be read by the common people. Tyndale has fled England as an outlaw for refusing to stop his translation work. When he is captured and imprisoned, Sarah becomes the only hope for saving his life. If she can smuggle a copy of Tyndale's New Testament into the hands of the king's wife, Anne Boleyn, perhaps she can persuade him to spare Tyndale's life. If her mission fails, her family is in peril of their lives.
