  • Crosses and Crowns ...  a tale about the persecution of Christians in Vietnam in the 1880s.
  • Prince Arumugam ... set in India where the rajah's son converts to Christianity despite his father's tenacious opposition and determination to uproot his son's new-found faith by all means fair and foul.
  • The Pirate's Prisoner ... the story of a young boy, Francesco, captured by the pirate Achmed who hopes to induce the boy to become a Muslim and his successor.  Meanwhile, Francesco's father tries desperately to ransom his beloved son.
