A farmer searching the moors at night for his son, missing after a skirmish in the English Civil War, stumbles across a Royalist soldier lying severely injured in a ditch. His decision to help the man will have surprising repercussions in year to come, both for his own family and for the stranger whose life was saved at great personal cost to his rescuers. Set against the background of stirring events and incorporating numerous references to real-life historical figures, Stronger than the Sword depicts a typical family living in rural England at a time when to refuse to conform to the forms of worship imposed by the state was to risk fines, or even imprisonment in harsh conditions.
