Albania, 1991: The Communist government falls and Leda, an ordinary Albanian girl, hears about Jesus Christ for the first time. Over the years that follow, Albania will see many changes and Leda will have to question what she believes, and why.

When Albania plunges into the violent Chaos of 1997, Leda and her best friend Suela find themselves on the run together. In the wild mountains between Albania and Greece, Leda will be forced to rely on her faith alone. Will her God come through when it matters most?
Leda by K C Murdarasi is a Christian children’s book that will appeal to 10-14 year olds. As well as the story of a girl coming to faith, it also offers a rare glimpse into the recent, turbulent history of Albania and the culture of this little-known country.

The book was written and shortlisted for the Scripture Union New Fiction Prize.

Dr John Blanchard, well-known Christian author, writes:

“I read Leda in the course of a flight from London to Dublin and found it to be quite a page-turner. The nicely-spaced incidents all move the story along in the right direction and I warmly commend it.”
