Some doors are hard to close, and some windows are almost impossible to see through. Elizabeth can't seem to do either as she struggles with both her past and her present. Orphaned at the age of two, Elizabeth was forced into a life of prostitution at sixteen. Now, despite having finally left her old lifestyle behind when she moved to the kingdom of Comdenshire, she doesn't believe she deserves love. No one could possibly want to spend his life with someone who is not only dirty and poor, but has behaved as shamefully as she has. When King Reginald catches a glimpse of her in the marketplace and falls in love with her, Elizabeth is both baffled and anxious. Despite her insistence that she is not lovable and that Reginald will not love her once he knows her better, he continues to pursue her. But what should he do when she is put in jail, accused of stealing a bracelet? And how can he communicate with her when the window of her cell has been painted over? Follow Reginald and Elizabeth in this romantic allegory of what it means to fully realize and accept Christ's love and be His bride. Suggested Bible passages and study questions after each chapter can deepen your understanding and help keep you close to God's truth. Discover that not only is it possible to have an intimate relationship with Christ, regardless of who you are and what you've done, but that He is eager to make you His.
