Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She's undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she's much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne's elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young.
Yet she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite's word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.
[From a 5-star review]: “I don't normally like overtly Christian works of fiction, even though I am a Christian. Typically, I find them to be preachy and filled with unremarkable, overly-good characters, and unbelievable story lines. However, I found this book to be surprisingly fun and a good read. The writing was very good. The characters were believable and likable. And, while I *thought* I might know how things were going to end, there were enough surprises that I wasn't sure about it.”
