Twelve-year-old Ivan lives behind the Iron Curtain in Communist-controlled Moscow. He and his family are Christians – a dangerous faith to hold in a country which glorifies blind loyalty to the state and often relegates pastors and political dissenters to work camps or insane asylums.
In Ivan and the Secret in the Suitcase (Book 5 in Behind the Iron Curtain: The Ivan Series), Ivan and his sister Katya dive into another adventure – smuggling. It’s illegal, just like sharing the gospel in the Soviet Union is, but it’s certainly not immoral. In fact, it’s their duty. Government officials are suspicious about this Christian family, but they haven’t realized that Ivan is smuggling warm clothes and Bibles for his needy friends – yet. Can Ivan and Katya continue to outwit the secret police and distribute the Word of God? Paperback, 131 pages.
