The Minstrel's Tale

Book Description
Fourteenth Century, France
Amos Questerly, a wandering minstrel takes on a
mysterious young apprentice. But his new protégé,
Richard, carries a deadly secret. A secret someone
is willing to kill for.
To reach safety they must earn their way to England
by telling exciting stories of magical swords, princesses,
and dragons, while danger follows on their heels.
By the time Amos learns Richard’s secret, it’s clear even
England may not be safe. The two, trapped in an adventure
as thrilling as any of the minstrel’s tales, must follow a
perilous path that leads straight to the royal palace.
My Review of the book
My wife and I like to read books as a family, and The Minstrels Tale is a great example of a book that the whole family will enjoy. Though written for young people, adults will enjoy this tale just as much. Submerging myself into this story was like stepping into the past, and I felt like I was right there alongside Amos and his young companion. I can't wait to find out what happens in books 2 and 3, and will definitely check out anything else this author writes. Great read, highly recommended!
