Level 7
Review:

This historical fiction book centers around the dangerous journey of William Tyndale as he translates and prints the Bible in English. The story is seen through the eyes of the main character, Tom, a smuggler who makes a deal with Tyndale to help distribute the Bibles. The book is filled with adventure and suspense. This is an interesting and worthwhile read, and while it is wholesome and supports good concepts, it was not as inspiring as I hoped it would be. Boys will most likely enjoy this book more than girls.
