Midwife Catherine Williams senses trouble when Roger Whitcomb and his sister Jane, both Quakers, arrive in Newbury seeking sanctuary from religious persecution. But strangers are not welcome, especially when their arrival is heralded by the drowning death of a sailor from their ship. Even Catherine finds herself suspicious of them, but when Roger is killed, Catherine is compelled to find out the truth.
