He has always loved her...and only her.
She's in love with a book and a cause he has vowed to destroy.

1535.
A passionate heretic hunter, Pernell Foxe has dedicated his life to protecting the sacred Scriptures from those infidels who translate it into the vulgar tongue and distribute it among the masses.
Meg Foxe, his wife, is haunted by her violent past and tortured by nightmares. She finds comfort in her husband's arms...when he's home. Then one night, soldiers pound on her door and whisk her away to Whitehall Palace to help calm the tempestuous Anne Boleyn, Queen of England. While there, Meg confiscates a banned New Testament from three of the queen's attendants, intending to destroy it. But the book falls open, and she is captivated and soothed by the words....

The story of a vulnerable woman, a driven man, and a remarkable book.

Not just a fiction page turner but a learning experience also about Tyndale and the political and religious atmosphere toward translation of the New Testament into the English language during 16th century England. The only real criticism I have is the story seemed to wrap up too quickly in the last two or three pages of the book.
