1680. The New Mexico Desert.
Leave your home. Go to the other side of the world, to a country that looks like nothing you’ve ever imagined. Go there and fight for an idea. Fight for your God. And wait and sweat and starve for your God. Trust in Him, trust in the captains He set over you, trust in the priests He sent to help you. Just keep fighting.
“Is it God’s work? Because it doesn’t look like it. Not when you’ve got as close to it as I have.”
A tense psychological thriller exploring war, belief and power against the harsh backdrop of colonial New Mexico. In the dusty borderlands of the Spanish Empire, four young soldiers are waiting for the captain who will bring them home. But their trials aren’t over just yet.
