From best-selling author Brenda Rickman Vantrease comes The Heretic's Wife, a magnificent tale about the power of love and the perils of faith. Tudor England is a precarious place for booksellers Kate Gough and her brother John, who offer forbidden translations of the Bible. Caught between warring factions-led by English opponents of the Lutheran reformation and Henry the VIII himself-Kate embarks on a daring adventure that will lead her into a dangerous marriage and a web of intrigue that pits her against powerful enemies.

Professional reviews

"Davina Porter's crisp British accent brings turbulent 1528 England to life through the lives of bookseller and printer Kate Gough and her husband, John Frith. He translates classical languages into English, a dangerous occupation. These forbidden translations bring the couple into the conflict between Catholicism and Reformation England, which is brewing as King Henry VIII seeks to divorce Katherine of Aragon in order to marry Anne Boleyn. Porter's quiet delivery heightens the tension in the illicit trade in English Bibles and the increasingly violent conflict between religious factions. Listeners interested in sixteenth-century England or the history of printing the Bible will be especially enthralled by Porter's polished and fluid narration. M.B.K.
