My Guest Review: The Crusade by Linda Wulf Press

I read and reviewed The Crusade by Linda Wulf Press and you can read my review HERE on Becky's blog The Bookette.



SUMMARY:

Robert: Left on the steps of a church as a baby, Robert was often hungry but never stole food like the other orphans in town. Introverted and extraordinarily intelligent, he knew all the Latin prayers and hymns by heart by the time he was five years old.

Georgette: Her own mother died in childbirth, leaving Georgette with a father who, seventeen at the time, had neither experience nor aptitude as a nurturing parent, and a brother known in town as Le Fuer - The Spitfire - for his terrible temper.

Perhaps to replace something missing from their own lives, both Robert and Georgette are drawn to the news of a crusader, twelve or thirteen, no older than themselves, travelling down through France with thousands of followers - all, unbelievably, children too. Of those thousands, this is the incredible story of two. This is a story of hardship, loss and love.

I read the book for the Historical Challenge 2011.

Irena, I just read your review on Becky's blog! I am going to try and get my hands on this one! It seems like a very interesting read, and I haven't read many books set in the medieval times...

Also noticed you are reading Innocent Traitor! I read that one last summer and enjoyed it very much! Before reading it, I didn't even know there was another queen between Henry VIII and Mary. I loved her writing too! Hope you are enjoying it! :)
