As Lawrence grows, so does his interest in revenging his parents' death. Peace, however, holds fast to her faith and trust in Christ and does her best to shield Lawrence from the tribal wars and his own drive for revenge.

The Story of Peace is a story of right relationships, chaste love, and the Truth of Christ. It is a story that draws in readers of all ages and is a wonderful book for teens as well as adults.
