Treachery and Truth
Katy Huth Jones
A story of sinners, servants, and saints.
Immersed in the historical background of the tenth century, this true tale of Good King Wenceslas, as told by his faithful servant Poidevin, brings the reader into the Dark Ages. Fear grips the land of Bohemia as the faithful face betrayal and persecution under the reign of the pagan Duchess Dragomira. As she struggles for power with the rightful heir, Prince Václav, her foes forge alliances in secret despite the risk of discovery. Who will survive?
"The story of Vaclav’s bravery, honesty, humility, and generosity also delivers a powerful message about the meaning of suffering, fidelity to Christ, and loving our enemies."
—Wayne S. Walker, Homeschool Book Review Blog
Duke Vaclav is the patron saint of the Czech Republic, but most people know him as "Good King Wenceslas" from the Christmas carol.
