A Land of Broken Vows

Full Product Description

“My Father promised me he would never leave me. That promise is one of the first things I remember.
“It was seven years since my father made me his promise, and six years since I learned what a promise was. And now my father lay bleeding on the ground, his head in my lap.
“‘Father! Don’t leave me! You said you wouldn’t! You said you’d never leave me! You promised!’ I kept on shouting.”

It’s 1141, and murder and death are sweeping over England. Knights, Barons and Kings make and break promises in order to get power and money. At the monastery of St Mary in the Wilds, John, the son of a Knight, seems shut away from all the broken promises, but soon even the monks can’t resist the temptation to break their vows to God.

John is plunged into a world of danger and lies – will he be able to protect his friend? And will his father keep his promise?

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 tale 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.
