This book kept me interested from the start to the end,it open my eyes to things that we happening at that period.
It is interesting to she how one small change in how someone sees life can truly make a big difference in many peoples lives even to the point of renounce oneself their nobility.

Bravo a good read.

Painted Children is a self-published book that revolves around the life of Lady Zan a Roman noblewoman who has been newly turned from a careless and luxurious life as the story begins. We meet her as she is dying and is saved at the last moment from a prayer to Jesus. From here, she radically changes her worldview, considers herself a Christian and eventually begins to shelter street children. I received a free copy of this book via Goodreads First Reads.
