A Land of Broken Vows by Steve Dixon


A Land of Broken Vows by Steve Dixon

This exciting historical adventure story brings the world of the 12th century alive for children aged 8 to 11. Battles, intrigue, lies, danger, a Queen of England and a confused boy all combine to form a fantastic fiction book. This gripping story will help children examine promises in their life as they see how the monks behave and the reasons behind the ways they lived their lives - promises made to God, not to men. This book forms an ideal companion to Lifepath events where monks are the central characters. Children will be able to attend the event and then read the story as they continue to learn more about monks, and God. The book is part of four Lifepath fiction books - the others are about Mary Jones , the Pilgrim Fathers , and the Wesleys .

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
