Les Misérables has been called the most important novel of the 19th century. It’s a tale of war and revolution, a touching love story, and a tale with some of the most memorable characters you’ll find in any work of fiction. Most of all, it’s a story about a desperate thief whose life is changed forever when a kind bishop, catching him in the act of stealing precious silver, forgives him.
Accustomed to living only for himself, Jean Valjean becomes a kindhearted man who helps a dying woman, cares for her child as if she were his own…and puts his life on the line to help an innocent stranger. The story that has thrilled millions comes to life in a brand new way in Focus on the Family Radio Theatre’s Les Misérables.
