Beautiful Illustrations by Angela Pruszynska in Krakow

Set in 1461 Poland, this is the story of Joseph Charnetski, a young country boy who moves to the city of Krakow with his parents.

Joseph does not know why, but his family is being pursued by some dangerous men who are determined to steal a mysterious object in his father's possession.

Although Joseph does not know what the object is, he does know that his entire family is in grave danger, that no place in Poland seems safe for them, and that no one can be completely trusted.

Three beautiful full-page color illustrations
Nine black and white line drawing illustrations
