Tudor England: Marjorie Bowes, the daughter of a rich and powerful family, grows up in a time of civil turmoil caused by the religious reforms of King Henry VIII. She meets John Knox, a renegade Scottish preacher in exile from his own country, who has been appointed one of the chaplains of the boy King Edward VI. They fall in love, to the consternation of her family.
When Mary Tudor becomes queen and vows to rid England of Protestants, Knox flees for his life. Marjorie has to choose between loyalty to her family and her love for Knox.
But Knox's native Scotland too is in turmoil. With Mary Queen of Scots married to the Dauphin, the French hold the wealth and the power. When the people of Scotland appeal to Knox to return home and lead the fight for freedom, Marjorie once more finds herself in the midst of a civil war.
