We hope everyone is enjoying a lovely summer so far!
I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the story by this talented teen author. This fictional story really highlights how difficult and dangerous it was to be one of the early Christians. There are so many great discussion topics throughout the story that readers of all ages can ponder. Marcus not only faced bullies, but he also had to decide if his faith was worth defending when faced with the brutality of the Roman government. Marcus’ Last Stand would make a great teaching tool for families. An impressive accomplishment for this new young talent. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

A brand new story set in Ancient Rome. Geared for approximately 5th grade readers, but great for the whole family! A lovely addition to Ancient Rome studies.
It’s 99 AD and Trajan is Emperor of Rome. Christianity is looked down on, and Trajan wants nothing more than to see the new religion’s leader, Clement, killed. And he knows exactly how to accomplish his mission: capture a Christian, and torture him into submission.
Meanwhile, 15-year-old Marcus is struggling with his Faith, even after a humiliating event in his past. When Marcus is arrested and imprisoned, he must choose between his faith and his life. Will he bend under torture? Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?
