Review by Esther Seim, 14
In Prince Vladimir’s youth, his grandmother teaches him about a God named Jesus Christ, who forgives his followers of their sins and grants them peace. When Vladimir becomes ruler of Novgorod, Russia, he turns away from Jesus Christ and follows his father’s god, Perun. Vladimir believes that Perun has blessed him with every worldly treasure: money, women, land, and sons. Yet there is one thing that Perun has not granted him: peace. Speaking through a man from Vladimir’s past, God reconciles the powerful prince to himself and transforms him into the holy prince of Russia.
This story of redemption was encouraging and uplifting. Some scenes confused me, and I had to go back and re-read them. Perhaps this was because there were many characters with long and difficult names. Other than that, I enjoyed reading this book, and I think you will, too.
