Third century Carthage was a dangerous place for Christians, but Christianity is only one of the problems standing in the way of Marcus and Elissa’s friendship. Elissa, a Christian, is a slave and her owner is Marcus’ grandfather, Verbius. Their friendship is further complicated by their discovery that, when they were infants, their mothers, Perpetua and Felicitas, were best friends who were martyred because of their faith. Verbius’ hostility toward Christians has grown since then. If Marcus becomes a Christian, his grandmother, Elissa, and all their Christian friends will be at risk, and he will lose his inheritance.
Elissa nudges Marcus closer to accepting faith, but his questions and concerns still have not been resolved. His journey remains difficult, until his grandmother is injured and near death.read more
