This inspiring story gives 21st century girls a look at life in the 8th century. Adelina is an honorable example of courage, nobility, perseverance, and faith in God. —Beall Phillips
From across the ages — thirteen centuries ago, when the fearless Scottish and Irish missionary bands are sent out from the Isle of Iona — comes the story of a virtuous young woman of unshakeable faith, filled with determination to fulfill the role to which God has called her. She finds herself whisked away from a simple life to become the queen of a kingdom where she wrestles with temptations from her past and faces down enemies intent on her demise. Based on a true story, this Esther-like tale recounts the deeds of the courageous Adelina of the ancient German Culdee church as she endures and overcomes persecution, slander, exile, and the impending destruction of her people. In the end, she is used by God to see the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ shine forth and prevail!
A story I love to read to my girls. Adelina’s life shows that girls can be feminine, strong, and Christhonoring! —Kim Coghlan, Editor of inashoe.com
