Summary (From the publisher):

Mary Lee Settle tells the story of Roger Williams: the most compelling figure in colonial America. Plucked from obscurity to clerk for the celebrated English jurist Sir Edward Coke, Williams has a ringside seat on the brutal politics of Jacobean London. He was witness to the pomp of the Star Chamber, the burning of a dissenter, and the humiliation of his master by King James and the royal favorite, the dangerously beautiful Buckingham. Haunted by ambition and love for a woman above his station, he fled to New England, where repression and conformity wore different clothes.
