The Merciful Eye: and Other Stories from the Middle Ages

From the depths of history and the dark days of the middle ages we read stories of danger and intrigue but ultimately of faith, hope and love. Jacques hoards his gold, but has yet to find real treasure. A young infant is neglected by his family, but his heavenly father brings him true love.With these and other stories Christine tells us of tragedy, but also of joy and redemption. These tales are inspired by times past, but ultimately focus on all our futures and the truth of eternity.Christine Farenhorst writes short stories with a pace, characterization, dialogue and subtlety that is quite outstanding. She is a true writer and restores a delight in the gift of reading. Children can read these stories, but I think they might have to tear them from the hands of their parents. Geoff Thomas
