Onesimus is a slave.
Eirene is a rich merchant’s daughter.
Onesimus longs to gain his freedom and Eirene’s love. However, he doesn’t realize where true freedom lies.
He wants nothing to do with Jesus Christ. His master, Philemon, may follow the teachings of the Christ and his apostle Paul… but Onesimus has other plans.

This is a great book! My mom read it aloud to my siblings and I several years ago, and are currently in the middle of it again!
The story, based off of the book of Philemon in the Bible, follows the life of Onesimus, Philemon’s slave.
I love the message of forgiveness and redemption. Onesimus isn’t forgiving and when his master, mistress, mother, and the girl he loves become Christians, he doesn’t understand the love of Christ. But as the book goes on…. I can’t tell you any more. You’ll have to read it. 😉
