Elk Jerky For the Soul

Seventeen year old Hope's home is destroyed and her family missing, but only a mysterious returned crusader believes her incredible story and pledges his life and honor to get her justice.

 Seventeen-year-old Hope rebels against her family's arranged marriage plans and her uncle's strange beliefs in Medieval England. She must fight sexual temptation and put her trust in a mysterious returned Crusader and his Arab friend when her home is attacked and her family kidnapped. A cryptic diary and a relentless enemy keep Hope off-balance but growing in reliance on God and her true knight.

from Chapter Eleven
"Sir Knight. I hear that thou wilt not say thy name nor thy true business to anyone.”
"It is a vow I have made, that Baron Cloyes must be the first in England to know of these things. ”
“Man, thy story might turn my heart completely to thy cause,” Lord Godwin said.
“It matters little now, my lord.” Sir Chris coughed several times. “The earl has said I am to be made to confess to the burning of the manor house. To that I cannot confess, and so ... Lady Hope?”
“Yes, Sir Chris?”
“I am sorry I could not help you,” he said in a voice I could scarcely hear. “I am sorry, too, that you were not persuaded to know Christ.”

Professional Reviews

Medieval Thrill Ride!
Self-publishing can rise to the occasion, and honestly, Mary Findley is one of those authors who stands a head above the rest in her effort to achieve perfection. For those who love medieval history, the Crusader period in England, all things knights and espionage, everyday estate life, and purity of period detail, you will find an absolute GEM in this story.

It's not a mystery, nor meant to be, when a long-missing son returns from the holy land to beg his father's forgiveness. Having been to hell and back, Sir Chris has at last found peace with the true Christ, something his father longed for but could not teach a hot-headed young man betrothed to his toddler cousin. Going to war in an exotic land seemed a better choice.

Hope and her mother went to live at Colchester after the death of Hope's father. Colchester is the family estate of Hope's mother, Ada, and where Hope is schooled by Ada's brother, the Baron, the father of Hope's betrothed, Richard, a man twenty years her senior who has been missing for most of Hope's life and presumed dead by all but his father. When Richard, masquerading as Sir Chris under the herald of a black lion, returns with his Arab brother in heart, Sadaquah, he is framed by another Crusader for the fire that nearly destroys Colchester and his family. Hope, who escaped with the help of her mother, accepts the aid of the Knight of the Black Lion and his surly friend, who has a strange history of his own. Their quest for truth and justice is an action-packed thrill ride, with spot-on period speech and costume that will set you down in thirteenth century England and live the adventure with these daring people.

Hope not only learns the secret of her knight-protector, but also the secret of his Samson-like strength, and is able to share it with those who need it most. Allegory, romance, action, this book will provide hours of enjoyment; suggestion: savor, don't gulp. And read through the enormous, impressive research the author did. This is why I don't write history but sit at the feet of those who do.
