The England of 1585 was not a safe place for faithful Catholics. The Queen's men hunted down and killed priests, then imprisoned those who protected them! Boys and girls alike will be spellbound by the engrossing exploits of young Nicholas who heeds God's call to protect his newly converted family and Catholic community from persecution by joining the Companions, a pious underground resistance.
In this historical adventure, author Henry Garnett brings to life the drama of a nation whose unjust laws forced good people to choose between their country and their Faith, and where even the young heard the call to heroism that Christians must be ever ready to heed.
