The Prisoner and the Kings is a riveting historical account of a prisoner in a Turkish penal colony and the letters he sent to religious and secular leaders that changed the world.

The prisoner was Bahaullah, Prophet and Founder of the Bahai Faith, one of the most remarkable figures in this or any age.
