About the Author
L. M. Roth is a "pilgrim on the path of life" and a seeker of truth. This quest first began at the age of eight when the author read Little Women and was struck by the sense of destiny shared by each of the March sisters as they "pilgrimed" their way through the trials and thrills that only life can offer. The quest deepened through the exposure to classic mythology and legends, which birthed a sense of hidden identity, that we are not who we have always thought we were, but are each of us heroes and heroines destined for something great and noble. Who are we? Where are we going? What tasks are we meant to accomplish during our time on Earth? We are all on a journey together as we seek the answers. You may join L. M. Roth in that quest anytime you read one of the author's books. L. M. Roth is the pen name of a Christian author from the American Midwest. You can keep up with the author on Facebook and play the L. M. Roth Quiz of the Day, a fun and informative quiz featuring the books of L. M. Roth.
This book is not openly marketed as YA or otherwise, but I would definitely characterize it as best for children 9-13. It is a charming little allegory that gently promotes the traditional virtues that are so sadly out of fashion these days. I read this to assess its value as a gift for my grandchildren, and for that purpose I recommend it most heartily. I think it would best be employed as bedtime reading aloud.
Delightful tale of a man who wants to make things right in his town, A dragon attacks the town and Abelard goes on a quest to free the inhabitants from the Dragon's vapor. In order to do that, he has to become a Knight and have a pure heart and intentions. He is given 10 tasks in order to determine if he will be able to become a Knight. Nothing arduous or hair raising, just some simple tasks that all People, let alone Knights, should follow.
A charming parable of Christian faith, without a preachy word from start to finish. A likeable and fun main character, plus decently developed secondary ones, including the horse, who might just be my favorite of the lot. Told like a fairy tale, and one I won't mind reading again. Delightful.
