As this beautifully illustrated story opens, we meet Drita, a young Albanian girl whose family has lived for years under repressive communist rule. After decades of religious oppression, Drita is finally able to discover the faith of her ancestors. As she experiences God's love for her through the example of her grandparents and the teachings of missionaries, she turns her heart toward Christ. At the story's joyful conclusion, Drita is baptized and lives in an Albania where all are now free to openly worship, praise, and glorify God in His Church.

Presbytera Renee Ritsi assists the Orthodox Christian Mission Center in sending short-term teams to serve Orthodox Churches around the world. She lives with her husband, Fr. Martin Ritsi, in St. Augustine, Florida.Review:
This book vividly and beautifully captures the joy and excitement of the spirit of missions and resurrection in what was formerly one of the most totalitarian and militantly atheistic regimes in the world. Drita is a great way to introduce our children to this essential spirit of the Christian life. --Fr. Luke A. Veronis, editor of Lynette's Hope: The Witness of Lynette Katherine Hoppe's Life and Death
