"Put your faith in God. He will care. That care, Mary, is what we call God's providence. I shall surely find it."

The year is 1635. Mary and her family live in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Her father, Roger Williams, is standing trial for preaching new ideas about freedom and equality. After he receives a secret warning that he has been found guilty, Roger must escape before soldiers come to arrest him. He travels into the dark, wintry wilderness where his only hope will be to find his friends, the Narragansett Indians. Will Mary ever see her father again? Will Roger find God's providence?

Avi's inspiring account of how Roger Williams settles what is now Providence, Rhode Island, is brought to life by James Watling's stunning illustrations.
