The Hawk That Dare Not Hunt By Dayby Scott O'Dell, Victor Villar-Hauser
The year is 1525 and books written by reformers like Martin Luther are being burned all over Europe. For Tom Barton, who smuggles such books into England, the ban is an opportunity to make money. But when Tom meets William Tyndale, who defies the king and distributes Bibles to the common people, he realizes that the Reformation is more than a money-maker and that spreading God's Word is worth risking one's life. 182 pages. For ages 12 and up.

The Hawk That Dare Not Hunt By Day is one of the best five star books I have ever read. it has everything from comedy to drama. this book is a must read. It all starts when young seaman tom Barton stumbles into Martin Luther follower, William Tyndale. Tyndale is looking for somebody to help him smuggle bibles into the United kingdom without King Henry VIII finding out. Barton jumps at the oppurtunity to become that one to help. On his journey he stumbles across danger and villains.Together they have to work to stay away from the government and any locals who might report the two heretics. You will adore this book.
