Gilbert M. Stack has been creating stories almost since he began speaking, and publishing fiction and non-fiction since 2006. A professional historian, Gilbert delights in bringing the past to life in his fiction, depicting characters who are both true to their time and empathetic with modern sensibilities. His work has appeared in several issues of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine and is also offered at Red Rose Publishing. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Michelle, and their son, Michael.

On this day (October 16) in 1384 Jadwiga (sometimes called Hedwig) was crowned King of Poland. She was Poland’s first female king. During her reign, she would successfully convince the King of Lithuania to convert to Catholicism and encourage his subjects to also convert as a pre-condition to marrying her. She would rule for nearly fifteen years.

But would this mysterious Samaritan prove to be part of the solution or the ultimate root of her problems?
