St.Thomas Becket

Today we remember St. Thomas Becket bishop and martyr. Bethlehem Books has a wonderful living history book about him called, If All the Swords in England. Here's a little about it...

"Young Simon, recently and tragically orphaned, becomes a scribe in the
following of the exiled Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket. The uncertainty
of the tumultuous years leading to the infamous cathedral slaying is heightened
by Simon's separation from his twin Edmund, who is in the service of King Henry
II. With an expert pen Barbara Willard deftly recounts events leading to the
bishop's martyrdom in 1170."

Snuggle Bug read it recently and LOVED it.
