Lillian Harvey’s first and only novel.

The King’s Diamond is a “must” for all young people. Read how a Christian girl, facing many subtle pressures and fierce temptations, meets the tests put to her by a rich and skeptical young diamond merchant from South Africa. Exulting in his great “find”, this worldly young man discovers, to his chagrin, that Someone has outbid him! Read, and be encouraged that it is possible, even today, to prove that Christ can take our worthless ore and produce from it a gem of priceless value.
