"The story of Roger Williams, somewhat fictionized and told in the first person, but emerging as a sensitive record of the sharp and long way to God... He tells of his childhood as son of a tradesman in England, of a mother who insisted on some measure of learning, of his gradual turning to religion. Then there are the circumstances that sent him forth to the New World -- his settling in Salem and Plymouth and finally, the exile, the grim winter trip, and the founding of Providence Plantations, the trouble with Indians, and the remaking of the settlement." - Kirkus Reviews
