Forget your old name. Forget your parents. These are the things Euphrosyne’s grandparents and counselor tell her. But if Orthodox Christianity is a lie, why did the icon so dramatically save her life? And what can she do to get the icon back?
In a post-Christian America, where going to church, praying, or owning holy things means death, a twelve-year-old girl searches for the truth. Finding it may cost her everything.
Excellent read. I would call it a living book indeed. You read not just words, feelings, prayers, you worship, sign the cross, the cry, even you feel the nudge of pain as the character is feeling it. Excellent book and I highly recommend it.
This book moves the eyes of the soul to see the ending of those who strive to choose the narrow way leading to God.
