Twelve-year-old Richard Winslow learns firsthand just how dangerous London of 1660 can be when his father is arrested for treason and imprisoned in the Tower of London. Worried about the rest of the family's safety, Richard's mother and sisters escape to Scotland, but young Richard decides to stay behind. What if his father needs him? Remaining in London is too risky, so Richard sets off for the nearby town of Bedford, where his uncle is the jailkeeper.
While working for his uncle in the jail, Richard makes an unexpected friend a prisoner named John Bunyan. Bunyan never misses a chance to preach the Gospel, even though it could result in death at the stake. Richard wants to help this brave man but is afraid of what might happen to him and his father if he does. Will Richard betray John Bunyan to get his father out of prison?
RICHARD WANTS HIS FATHER'S FREEDOM, BUT IS HE WILLING TO PAY THE TERRIBLE PRICE?
