AngelineBook - 2004
ANGELINE CAN HARDLY BEAR the blistering heat, the noise, the sea of faces crowding in upon her in the teeming Egyptian market. But most of all, she cannot believe that she is being sold as a slave to one of the great princes of Cairo. It was only a short time ago that she left her small village in France to follow Stephen, a shepherd boy whose vision led him to mount a children's Crusade to the Holy Land. But now they have been tricked, and, doomed to a life of slavery in a foreign land, even Stephen has lost all hope.
Karleen Bradford returns to the Crusades and vividly recreates medieval Cairo, a rich and cultured city where Muslims, Christians and Jews live peacefully, side by side.
