Overview

The winds from the valley known as Pelice carried an ominous tale of
sorrow and destruction. The army of the blackrobed Inquisitors had laid
seige to the defenseless inhabitants of the valley, destroying churches and
killing those who refused to renounce their faith. Yet high on a granite
mountain above the land that forms the border between Italy and France
stood Joshua Gianavel—one man who held the fate of his people in his
hands. In the valley below Europe’s mightiest army gathered to lay siege
to his people. He would not allow the same desolation to reach his home
and people in the valley of Rora. With lionlike courage he waged warfare
against the Inquisitors with a brilliance the world had never seen.
Based upon the true story of the historic stand of the Waldenses in 1655,
Rora is a spellbinding tale of a legendary hero, of international intrigue and
subterfuge, of cloakanddagger tactics, of a faith that refused to die.
Historical Fiction at Its Best!
