From the author:
Through the horrors of war and intense and almost unbelievable persecution for their faith in Christ, the characters in this novel – all composites of people known to the author – display enduring perseverance and courage. The underlying truth of each fictional episode makes this book much more than mere fiction. It is the gripping story of real people who would not recant their faith despite the most traumatizing conditions. Truly the gates of hell could not overcome China’s courageous believers of Jesus Christ.
