When her plans to stay with her aunt in Carpathia go quickly awry, Anna finds it takes all that is in her to trust God with the outcome.

This is a story full of mystery and sacrifice that will leave you questioning whether you have what it takes to give up everything for Christ, even your very own life.

Discover the account of three lives, all so different from each other. And find out how one person’s decision can affect the lives of so many.

Will Anna stand strong and not waver in her faith? Or will she crumble under the rule of the heartless king?

I enjoyed the book and was captivated by Anna. She is hoping for a better life and travels to live with her aunt. It was sad to read that Anna traveled so far only to find out her aunt had passed away. I won't say how she died but it does make one think what you would do in her situation. In a turn of events Anna is offered a job working for the king. Anna believes she has found a friend in William knowing he is the kings son. 

Anna has no idea what she has walked into when she starts her daily chores at the castle. She has been warned that the king does not allow anyone to talk about God in his presence. The king is bitter and blames God for his loss. I loved how Anna was not afraid to share her love of God and was willing to pay the ultimate price for her faith. Would you be willing to die for God or deny Him? I pray if I am ever faced with that scenario that I would stand up and trust God.

William is concerned for Anna's safety as she continues to be open about her Christianity.  Will he find a way to protect Anna? The story is very well written and gave me much to think about. In today's world, people are still persecuted for their belief in God. I loved how the author explores the scriptures which enhance the story. Anna is a character that is not ashamed of her faith. You don't want to miss the ending of this inspiring story. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
