Ella's Story brings to life the amazing journey of Princess Elizabeth, from privileged childhood to eventual martyrdom. While her biography, as St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, is available to adults, this is the first such book for girls, and is written in an approachable, appealing style.
Maria Tobias tells the Princess' story in such a lively way that the book is hard tp put down. Elizabeth a real princess, is gifted with all those qualities girls still seek (intelligence, beauty, wealth, renown), converts to Orthodoxy, and subsequently sheds all earthly glory for the geater prize of the martyr's crown. She is a true role model for today.
