Margaret, Agnes and Thomas are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in but it means that they are forced to leave their home and their parents for a life of hiding on the hills. If you were a covenanter in the 1600's you were the enemy of the King and the authorities. But all you really wanted to do was worship God in the way he told you to in the Bible. Margaret wants to give Jesus Christ the most important place in her life, and this conviction might cost her life. THERE IS DANGER ON THE HILL FOR MARGARET. THERE IS DANGER EVERYWHERE IF YOU ARE A COVENANTER.
