BOOK THREE|THE PARADISE CHRONICLES|A TALE OF THE BIRTH OF THE HERSHBERGER FAMILY
Princess Isabella has been raised to a life of great wealth and leisure in the Polish Royal Court. She is destined to marry a king. But fate or divine providence intervenes when she meets Johann Hershberger, the young Anabaptist stable-hand who works for her father. His strength, kindness, and faith win her heart and together they flee to the city of Meunster, Germany, where a great revolution is underway. The Anabaptists, under Jan Mathys, have taken over the city and declared it the Kingdom of God on earth. Isabella and Johann are married and Johann joins in the revolution. But the excesses and sins of the leaders soon turn him away to the path of peace taught by Menno Simons. The Hershbergers try to escape, but the city is surrounded by the troops of the Catholic Bishop Prince, Franz von Waldek, who has been paid by Isabella’s father to return the princess at all costs. At the height of the battle, Isabella and Johann and their infant son are captured by von Waldek, and Isabella must make a choice that could change the course of European history.
