Stephen rated Georgios I Hidden Heritage 5 of 5 stars on Good Reads! Nice adventure book interlaced with sacred moments. This is the initial book in a series and it whets the appetite for more. The journey they are on is full of danger and is bound to continue as they come into contact with forces of evil in the world. Nice character development and action packed.
"A wonderful story of adventure and courage..." Lu Cortese, President of St. Joseph Radio - I.H.S. Productions
"My children love this author!" Anne Houseal USAF (Retired), Alaskan, wife and mother of four

Georgios: Hidden Heritage, by A. K. Fraley is one of the best examples of historical fiction I’ve read in a while. Through fictional characters, Fraley introduces historical figures and events in a way that is totally credible, while at the same time entertaining.
Her fictional characters, in fact, are sometimes even more real than those who actually existed. She makes us feel what they feel and see what they see. This is a great example of history come alive.
It encompasses a variety of cultures, age of characters, countries, sea voyages of traders, and battles with the Roman empire. This gives it a multidimensional fresh look as these cultures meet and relate with each other around 100 AD.
Yes, this is a tale of discovery: about the past, about other people, about God and about Georgios himself. Who is he, and what greatness is he destined for?
As we follow Georgios in his travels, which take him far from his home, we see him struggle both physically and spiritually as his ideas about himself, his family and life are challenged.
I enjoyed this story very much. I felt empathy with the characters, especially Georgios who came over as very likeable. I wanted to read on to see how his story ended.
From time to time we left Georgios briefly to follow the story of his grandparents, Roxana and Myron. They also find themselves on an unexpected adventure of discovery, and their thoughts and feelings are revealed in the form of letters. The second storyline added interest and depth to the novel.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys authentic historical fiction, and is looking for an involving, thought provoking story with Christian values. It is suitable for teenagers and adults.
