PAPERBACK
Twelve-year-old Thomas lives deep in the forest with his family. A gifted artist, all he wants to do is draw all day. His chance comes when the local landowner, discovering his talent, takes him into his house, intending to sponsor him as an apprentice to his friend. Before his apprenticeship begins, Thomas travels to the 'Big House' to learn social manners. But when Sir John's sons start a fight and throw him in an underground hole, he discovers a man already in residence. Whispering for secrecy, the man shows him how to escape. Grateful for this, he says nothing when he sees the Whisperer secretly travelling with them to London, where Thomas will begin his seven-year apprenticeship. In London danger still lurks, and Thomas is drawn into a world of religious and political upheaval. Faced with the choice between loyalty and safety, Thomas must embark on a journey that will test his courage and resilience.
