Helena’s Voyage

Author: Paul Harbridge

Illustrated by: Paul Harbridge

A sick girl named Helena is taken by an angel on an ancient sailing boat far over the waves. Their destination: three cities that glow as if blessed of God―one Jewish, one Christian, one Muslim. Helena comes to realize that all these people believe the same divine law―to love God and their fellow man.
