Seton's Description:
From the popular Louis de Wohl Series of historical novels about the saints, published by Ignatius Press. In this magnificent and stirring novel, Louis de Wohl turns his famed narrative skill to the story of the soldier and merchant's son who might have been right-hand man to a king...and who became instead the most beloved of all saints. Set against the tempestuous background of thirteenth-century Italy and Egypt, here is the magnificent and inspiring story of Francis Bernadone, the brash, pleasure-loving young officer who was to become immortalized as a St. Francis of Assisi. The story teems with action, pageantry and intrigue with finely conceived characters-the beautiful, saintly Clare, Frederick, the hawk-faced King of Sicily and Holy Roman Emperor, the Sultan al Kamil, Pope Innocent III. The scene shifts from Assisi, Rome and Sicily to the deadly sands of Egypt. Recommended for High School. 1979, Ignatius Press. 378 pp.
