Be swept away to the land of Baladia, where an intimate look into the life of King Richard III reveals the monarch’s raw emotions, which are normally hidden from the public eye. The captivating adventures of the royal family prove that when God is involved, honor and integrity will always triumph over deceit and greed. King Richard III has his hands full overseeing the country of Baladia. Tensions are mounting with surrounding nations. The Kurtogovians are massing at the border and the Marans support of slavery is evoking protests by the Baladian subjects. Fortunately, the king’s son, Crown Prince Richard, is by his side to deal with the pressing issues at hand. His dependability and pleasant nature are admired by all. Or perhaps not? When Prince Richard falls ill, the prognosis is shocking. Without a bone marrow transplant, he will die. Family rally around the young prince to offer help. When forced by unforeseen circumstances to look outside the family for a donor, the King appeals to the public to help. Can the royal family’s prayers and faith prevail? Will someone be found to save the prince or will more sinister plans prevail and cost the Prince his life?
