The year is 1635, and Mary Williams and her family live in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Her father, Roger, is on trial for preaching new ideas about freedom. When found guilty, he flees into the cold, telling Mary that she must trust in God's providence to see him to safety.
Roger's only hope of survival lies with the Narragansett Indians. Will Mary ever see her father again?---from the publisher
