This is a novel of political intrigue, spies, and treason in medieval Newfoundland.

The year is 1504 and father Ralph Fletcher, a young priest, is paid forty testoons to stay and minister to the winter crew while the summer fleet returns to England. He becomes swept up in intrigue as the winter crew attempts to depose King Henry VII of England in favour of a Yorkist pretender. Father Ralph’s role in the plot becomes clear – he is to sanctify the actions while striving to convert the native Beothuk to Christianity.
