Treachery and Truth by Katy Huth Jones Immersed in the historical background of the tenth century, this true tale of Good King Wenceslas, as told by his faithful servant Poidevin, brings the reader into the Dark Ages. Fear grips the land of Bohemia as the faithful face betrayal and persecution under the reign of the pagan Duchess Dragomira. As she struggles for power with the rightful heir, Prince Vaclav, her foes forge alliances in secret despite the risk of discovery. Who will survive? Review: Treachery and Truth is the fascinating true story of Good King Wenceslas. I, of course, knew the name thanks to the well-known Christmas carol but I honestly never thought about the inspiration for this classic song but I’m sure glad someone did. Katy Huth Jones writes a beautiful story about this beloved Czech duke, who was a faithful Christian during a time filled with pagan gods, betrayal, and war. The story is cleverly written through the eyes of the Duke’s faithful servant, which was an intriguing way to tell this story. Though it’s a work of fiction, the story is based on the facts known about this historic figure and draws the reader into his fascinating life. It was inspiring to see this young hero’s faith and goodness that affected so many around him. I read this novel during Advent but it’s a fabulous book at any time of the year. I look forward to reading more from this author. A Note From the Reviewer: As a writer and a mother, I’m always searching for wonderful Christian books for teens of all ages. I truly believe one way we can encourage teens in their faith is through fiction with positive messages, embedded in great stories. There are many fantastic Christian and Catholic teen novels out today…read-more
