Father Vera Daniel is the parish priest to a village located in the rural regions of the Kingdom of Parvion . . . but he is a man of mystery. Although he welcomes gentry and commoner alike, he keeps his past hidden from his congregation—and later his location from a trio of inspectors. While raised to be a loyal citizen of Parvion, Father Vera finds himself increasingly at odds with the royal authority he had sworn to obey as a child. At the same time, many are meeting in secret, plotting against his demise because of his allegiance to the church and because of his sincere faith that leads him to minister to the poor and the oppressed. As Parvion’s chronic warfare, economic woes, and increasing intolerance of dissent feed the calls for revolution, Father Vera finds himself in grave danger with a tough decision to make.
