Eveline, a Bohemian peasant girl, had already suffered great loss in her short life. When their underground church of believers is discovered, she is forced to flee with her family and new husband. If she had known then that she would soon lose all and be left alone on the streets of Vienna with only her unborn baby, it may have been more than she could have borne. Thankfully, God does not allow his children to be tested beyond their endurance. He will bless and use her in ways she could never have foreseen. Through hostile new in-laws, prickly co-workers, religious war, and a wayward child, she continues to overcome. Framed in the first quarter of the 15th century, Eveline's story is entwined with many historical figures such as John Hus, the great Bohemian Preacher, Zizka, the one eyed Bohemian general, Master Grocer Kritz, and bad King Wenceslaus. Eveline's family were willing to be numbered as heretics, just like the Apostle Paul, who said, "But this I confess unto you, that after The Way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets." Acts 24:14 The Old Heretic and his wife have sought to present the heretic's story and restore the honor they are denied by the slanders made against them. This book is a late chapter, in the story of the CHAIN OF WITNESSES. Continue to follow the family into St. Gallen, Switzerland in book 2, THE INQUISITOR. When completed, Book 3, THE GREEK PRINTING PRESS will find the family in Nidda, Germany.
