Edmund is just an ordinary fisherman's son from the island of Lindisfarne, whose one great talent and joy is running as a messenger for his bishop.  But when Viking invaders threaten the holy island and its great treasure, the relics of St. Cuthbert, Edmund's life changes forever.  Along with his whole village, he must accompany their beloved saint on a perilous pilgrimage that will carry him across England, through adventure, heartbreak, miraculous deliverance, and love, all the way to manhood.

'Bearing the Saint' brings to life the late ninth century in Northumbria, a turbulent period of invasion and conquest that concluded with an uneasy peace between Saxon and Dane.  This gripping story, infused with the holy breath of St. Cuthbert, will hold readers of all ages spellbound.

    I've started reading fiction books to recommend to my growing kids, esp. my 11yo daughter. "Bearing the Saint" is a great read, full of adventure which will delight the middle-school readers. The use of some medieval words can be challenging, but not overwhelming, since there is a very good glossary in the back.
