Description

What would you sacrifice to protect your way of life? In the sixteenth century, a young nun risks everything to defy the most powerful authorities, fulfill a prophecy, and preserve the future of Christendom. BETWEEN THE CROWN AND THE CROSS STANDS ONE WOMAN IN 1538, ENGLAND is in the midst of bloody power struggles that threaten to tear the country apart. Aristocrat-turned-novice Joanna Stafford knows what lies inside the king's torture rooms and risks imprisonment when she is caught up in an international plot targeting the king. As the power plays turn vicious, Joanna understands she may have to assume her role in a prophecy foretold by three different seers. Joanna realizes the life of Henry VIII, as well as the future of Christendom, are in her hands--hands that must someday hold the chalice that lies at the center of these deadly prophecies. . . .
