About the Book

Isabella, Princess of Poland, 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 Johan Heirschberg, a young Anabaptist who works in her father’s stable. His strength, kindness, and faith win her heart and together they flee to the city of Münster, Germany, where a great revolution is underway. Militant Anabaptists have taken over the city and declared it the Kingdom of God on earth. Isabella and Johan are married and Johan joins in the revolution. But the excesses and sins of the leaders soon turn him away. Catholic Bishop, Franz von Waldek, who has been paid by Isabella’s father to find the princess at all costs, sends his army to sack the city. Johan and Isabella escape and flee to Frisia, where they become followers of Menno Simons and learn the way of non-violence. Betrayed by an informer, Isabella and Johan and their infant son are captured by von Waldek and returned to Poland. There Isabella must make a choice that could change the course of European history.
