  Well Written and Enjoyable!
Darla Dixon of Snellville, GA, 10/16/2008
I illustrated this book and I also really enjoyed reading it. Each chapter is written by a different author. One author was only 15 years old, which is so inspiring for other homeschoolers that they could also become successful in writing. All the biographies read like exciting short stories and really bring the historical figures to life - as real people with fears and failings, but also with great faith. The historical figures in this book are Saint Patrick, Theodora, Alcuin, King Wenceslas, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Johann Gutenberg, and Martin Luther. Thank you for selling this wonderful book on your website, and please look for the new book on Ancient Times coming soon from the same publisher and editor.
