There’s not enough room on the entire internet to list all of the books I’ve loved over a lifetime of reading. But here are a few, some of which I even know the author. There’s so much talent out there!
A series by Wayne Turmel called Lucca le Pou Stories. The first book, Acre’s Bastard, is “…exciting, sometimes wry tale, takes an adult look at the Crusades through the eyes of its most innocent victims–the children.” What a whirlwind of a story! You’ll fall in love with Lucca and cheer him on as he faces one trial after another. From his friends to his enemies, you’ll have a vivid picture of all the players Lucca encounters. Wayne writes in a sophisticated manner, and even though the story is easy to read, its a delicious web of intricacies that pull you in and don’t let you go until the last word. I highly recommend this book, as well as the second book in the series, Acre’s Orphans. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Wayne. What a character! He’s an amazing fellow and writer. Add him to your list of must-read authors.
