Przednia okładka
TEACH Services, Inc., 2003 - 182

Accused of being a traitor, the terrified teen-age girl stood facing the military judge. A gendarme guarded her escape. She knew that most defendants left this court bound for the firing squad. Since she was not allowed a defense attorney, she pled her own case. Favorably impressed, the judge said, “My dear girl. I’m sorry we have troubled you. Almost you have persuaded me to be like you. We Moslems believe many of the same things you do, but we don’t practice them as faithfully. I am happy to find people in our land who live out the principles of our religion...May Allah be merciful to you. You are acquitted. Go in peace.”

Readers will be captivated by Diamondola’s courage, faith, and sacrifice which was attended by endless miracles. During the dying days of the Ottoman Empire, 13 year-old Diamondola began her mission. At the risk of life, she preached the gospel in Turkey, Yugoslavia and Greece.
