1 Barbara Willard Augustine Came to Kent
i p 1883937213 / 9781883937218 
It is the year 597 and Pope Gregory is sending a select number of his monks, led by Fr. Augustine, to re-evangelize England. Young Wolf, born in that land but raised in Rome, accompanies his father, Wolfstan, who goes as a guide and interpreter. Though the King of Kent's wife is a Christian, the missionaries from Rome do not know whether they will be welcomed, tolerated or martyred. In a story full of adventure, Wolf meets Fritha, a Saxon girl whose life and destiny are soon closely bound up with his own. Events, significant in the history of Christianity, are vividly brought to life by this veteran writer of historical fiction. Length: 184 pages Edition: Paperback

2 Barbara Willard If All the Swords in England
ip 1883937493 / 9781883937492 
Illustrated by Robert Sax If All the Swords in England, first published in 1961, makes a happy comeback in this quality paperback edition by Bethlehem Books. The drama unfolds during the turbulent years of the argument between King Henry II Plantagenet and Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, concerning juridical authority in church matters. After the tragic deaths of their parents, brothers Simon and Edmund Audemer are separated. Edmund becomes a page in the court of King Henry II, while Simon becomes a scribe in the household of Thomas Becket. Willard's use of the literary device of the two brothers allows the reader a "first-hand" glimpse into both the characters of Thomas Becket and Henry II as well as into the climate of the times. The book is full of exciting episodes (including a miracle), and interesting characters. Barbara Willard's If All the Swords in England presents a timeless story of courage and conscience. It is also an excellent introduction to the heavier Becket by Anouilh and T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral. Edition: Paperback Ages 9 and up

3 Barbara Willard Son of Charlemagne
ip 1883937302 / 9781883937300 
The year is 781 A.D. King Charles of the Franks is crossing the Alps with his family and court on a journey to meet with Pope Hadrian. One frosty night he speaks to his young son Carl of his plans for the future: "When we come to Rome you will know that I am naming you my heir. One day you will rule over all my lands..." But the King already had an heir, Pepin the Hunchback, mockingly called Gobbo. Was he to be dispossessed? Yet Carl sees that Charlemagne is determined to do what he feels is best to serve God and Europe. The many-faceted story of the great Emperor Charlemagne and his son Carl will stir the minds and imaginations of young people. Through Carl's eyes we discover the grand dimensions of western Europe's foundation. "This book presents history in a readable, enjoyable and memorable format. I use it whenever my family studies the Middle Ages." - Laura M. Berquist Ages 10 and up Length: 208 pages Edition: Paperback
