Publisher's summary

The young orphan Crispin and his gentle, red-bearded protector, Bear, continue their adventures in 14th-century England. Crispin and Bear are finally free to live their lives as they choose. But they soon find that they are being hunted by members of a secret society who believe Bear is a spy.

When Bear is severely wounded, Crispin must make some tough decisions, such as deciding who else to trust to help them escape their pursuers. The two make a perilous journey to Brittany - surely the edge of the world! There, they must confront death in order to find true freedom.

Avi has written several books of historical fiction for which he has been showered with numerous awards, including the Newbery Medal for Crispin: Cross of Lead. He explores the themes of war, religion, and family in this suspenseful adventure. The superb reading from narrator Ron Keith will enthrall listeners.
