The Lost Prince of Samavia

The Lost Prince of Samavia is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marco and his father struggle to bring hope and deliverance to the beleaguered people of Samavia and return their lost Prince. I love this book. This author also wrote The Secret Garden. It is in the style of a bygone era, but so well written that it still holds the reader. I loved Stephan Loristan in a way that surprised me, until I realized that he reminded me of Jesus Christ - so steady, kind, unchanging - a man who inspired devotion from all who knew him. The values of faithfulness, of duty and of care for others, make this book one that I will read again.
