Elizabeth Percy can hardly believe she is engaged to marry the honorable, brave King Reginald. Together, they will rule over the beautiful land of Comdenshire as man and wife. Soon, however, the king is called away to battle with Balefore, a neighboring kingdom. Elizabeth finds herself the bearer of an amazing amount of responsibility, and she requires the help of her close allies to keep the peace. Almost immediately, the kingdom is threatened. There is an evil force in Comdenshire, one who threatens all that is good and righteous – including Elizabeth. Conspiracies lurk in the darkened castle corners, and foes threaten to overthrow the peaceful kingdom Reginald has built. Elizabeth is the territory’s only hope, yet she doubts herself. Elizabeth was not always an upright, queenly woman. She is haunted by the failings of her past and has trouble moving forward, especially without Reginald by her side. Still, she knows Reginald loves her – has always loved her and will always love her, despite her faults. Will she keep Comdenshire at peace until his return, or will past regret and a current threat bring down the joyous, faithful life she hopes to live? Threads is the second book in the Painted Window trilogy, an allegorical representation of the walk of every believer.
