“I bring news,” he said. “It’s not good.”
“Is it you? Jurian, have you been reported?”
Jurian glanced up. “I wouldn’t have come back here if I had been.”

Under a Silent Sky is a historical fiction story set in Germany in the 1200s. Defying the state church, Jurian has dedicated his life to translating Scripture into the people’s dialect.
