Overview
-

From English Civil War battlefields to a mystery lost in the forests of North America, this is both a roaring adventure and a timely commentary on the dangers of religious extremism. Rhisiart Dafydd is a zealous Parliamentarian who embraces Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army and the violence it entails. But can his convictions survive the atrocities of the English Civil Wars and Parliament's campaign in Ireland? Called upon by his former commander to voyage to America to seek out a missing group of Welsh Puritans, he must first survive the journey, and then - if he can find the community - see whether they really have created the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. An epic historical adventure set during one of the most turbulent periods in history, this gripping thriller also poses questions about violence, power, and rejection of difference which are chillingly relevant to our world today. "...Unusual but intriguing slice of Colonial American history."--Publishers Weekly "Jerry Hunter's battle descriptions are amazing. He is able to depict the cloud of war, the feeling of the soldiers in the heat of battle."--Ninnau
