The Virtue Chronicles : The Hidden Heroes - Paul McCusker
The Hidden Heroes: Andrew and Eve must travel to Elizabethan England (16th century) to find Dr. Howard, a man from the present, who travelled there accidentally. They are immediately thrown into the danger of that time, as Queen Elizabeth and her notorious Privy Council attempt to imprison faithful Catholics. On the run, they must evade "hunters" while searching for Dr. Howard. Along the way, they meet the Hidden Heroes of the Catholic faith – Edmund Campion, Robert Persons, Ralph Sherwin and the many other priests who journeyed through England to encourage and minister to the suffering Catholics there. Andrew and Eve soon experience the harrowing lives of fugitives, persecution as Catholics, and the remarkable grace that comes in the midst of trouble. Through Andrew and Eve, readers will learn the amazing history of the English martyrs who bravely served Jesus and His Church in conditions few of us can imagine.
