King of the Shattered Glass is a sweetly illustrated parable of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This medieval tale of a taunting glassblower's son and a prideful scullery maid reveals what happens when a repentant heart encounters the life-changing power of Divine Mercy.This beautifully illustrated story tells a tale of an orphan, Marguerite, who works in the King's kitchen. When Marguerite breaks the King's precious glass, those around her tell her to bury the glass and hide the evidence, but her conscience tells her otherwise. What is she to do?
Susan Joy Bellavance's tale of courage, honesty, and bravery through the character of Marguerite gives readers deep insight into mercy and how God shows us his love through the Sacrament of Confession.
