CRUSADE OF TEARS QUEST OF HOPE PILGRIMS OF PROMISE
Audio sample from the audiobook release of ‘Crusade of Tears’ narrated by international broadcaster, Colin Fluxman.
In the Year of our Lord 1212, tens of thousands of children followed their faith in what is now known as the Children’s Crusade. About 50,000 youths from ages 5 to 16 marched from Germany in hopes of rescuing the Holy Land by the power of their innocence. Tragically, these brave children have been forgotten…until now. The Journey of Souls Series recounts the history of the times in wonderful detail. But the fact-based trilogy is far more than a thrilling, gut-wrenching, nail-biting adventure; it is a life-changing exploration of life that is likely to change you.
Baker spent ten years of research and writing for this trilogy. This included four trips to Europe during which he traveled the speculated route of the crusade. From the muddy shoreline of the North Sea, through the Rhine Valley, over the Alps and to the rocky coast of Genoa, Italy, Baker studied the terrain and historical contexts through which his characters traveled. Having invested a decade in the study of this event, you will be transported in ways you never could have imagined. Welcome to the journey…
“Rich with period detail and brimming with adventure, Baker’s novel brings to vibrant life the perilous story of the Children’s Crusade.” Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Thorn in My Heart.
