“The story was written as a spiritual allegory to show the depth of God’s love for Mankind,” said Lacek.  “It’s appeal for all ages is significant and leaves a lasting impression on the reader,” she added. 

The book is set in a dark and tumultuous Medieval time and uses the “Sleeping Beauty” story and the Biblical book , “The Song of Solomon,” to create an engaging tale full of truths.  It is easily relatable to the current fearful condition many feel in the world today. The relationship between Prince Emanuel from the Everlasting Kingdom and his beloved bride here on earth is captivating and calms the fears of those who embrace it with faith and assurance. 

This fully illustrated book has beautiful artwork created by Lacek, that brings the story to life. The book is available to be ordered online in hardcover format and has a Kindle version available as well. When asked why the hardcover version was chosen, Lacek replied, “The story holds a treasured, classic quality. So because of its keepsake and gift ability, the hardcover was chosen to enhance its charm and beauty.” 

The book was published by Grace Ministries International Inc. “The Secrets of the Everlasting Kingdom” features a symbolism section and discussion questions for youth and adult groups written by Pastor Dave Lacek, who also served as the spiritual advisor for the book.

The Secrets of the Everlasting Kingdom” retail price starts at $18.99 and has a Five Star rating on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  Her book is also available for purchase at several online bookstores and locally at Thistledown Boutique, in Washington, Pa.  She is available for book signing events for the holiday season and speaking engagements in the Pittsburgh and surrounding area.
