Two Burmese girls who have come to live with missionaries Adoniram and Ann Judson in 1823 Burma, don't know what to believe about their foster parents. Myat Rodgers, a Burmese-English boy, is convinced they are spies and accuses the girls of aiding the enemy as Burma and England go to war. And when the Judsons are thrown into Death Prison, the evidence seems convincing to the girls as well.
Thrilling adventure stories introducing young readers (ages 8-2) to Christian heroes of the past.The two young Burmese girls had dreaded leaving their father, but he told them that the only safe thing was for the two of them to go live with the American missionaries, Adoniram and Ann Judson. May-Lo and Len-Lay really aren't sure what the danger is, and they don't know what to believe about their American foster parents. Could the accusations that the missionaries were English spies be true?When the Judsons leave the city of Rangoon to establish a mission work in Ava, the Golden City, the girls are taken along on the dangerous river trip that will separate them from their father by 350 miles. Will they ever see him again? Will they even make it to their destination? How will the emperor of Burma respond to Mr. Judson's petitions to give religious freedom to Christian converts?Their arrival is followed by eventual disaster. When the British attack the Burmese, all the white foreigners, including Adoniram Judson, are hauled off to the terrible Death Prison. Every clue indicates that the Judsons are spies, and a Burmese-English boy named Myat Rodgers is determined to prove their guilt. Should the girls tell the authorities what they know? Or will they all end up in the Death Prison?Without their father's help whom could they trust?
