Convention Booth #1208
280 pages, ages 12-adult, originally published in 1879
Margarethe, the proud, impetuous daughter of a nobleman in Germany, wants no part in her father’s plans to marry her off to Count von Schonstein’s son, Eric. She would much rather stay at home with her beloved younger sister, Else, but Else will soon be leaving to spend the rest of her life in a convent. Unlike her gentle, pious sister, Margarethe is certain that God’s only desire is to make her life miserable, especially now that she refuses to participate in the rites and ceremonies of the Church. When her brother, Fritz, brings her an “indulgence” from far-off Juterbog, she doubts that even this can make her acceptable to an angry God.
Then, from her great-aunt, Margarethe hears of another religion, one almost forgotten, that taught that God loves the world, and she longs to know if this message is true. As the controversy surrounding the teachings of Martin Luther and Ulrich Zwingli intensifies, she and her dear friend, Anna, along with Fritz and Eric, must decide what part they might play in the emerging Reformation.
