Blurb:  In 1714 Peru, a friar is tried by the Inquisition for questioning God's intentions when five die in the collapse of an Andean rope bridge. In early 18th century Peru an old Inca rope bridge collapses, plunging five travelers to their deaths in the Andean chasm below. Brother Juniper, who witnessed the accident, becomes determined to prove that humans live and die by divine providence and sets out to explore the lives of the five victims.
