My PInterests.......

So, I've finally joined this newfangled Pinterest thingy. I rather like the idea of a montage of pictures devoted to a particular subject. Hence, I am sharing here a two of my first boards. This first one was created because I love the Anglo-Saxon period (roughly 500-1066 AD), and I am very exited about two new titles set in that period due out this year, Oswald: Return of the King by Edoardo Albert in May, and Hild: Abbess of Whitby by Jill Dalladay, coming in August.

The board is really an Introduction to and celebration of all things Old English, from clothing and food, to armour and buildings, to give viewers a sense of the age and the time. Since both the books are written by British-based authors, and from a British Publisher, it seems relevant. Enjoy....

The second board is quite similar to one of my posts on here, but slightly updated, displaying all of the Christian Fiction titles set in the Medieval period that have come out or are due for release this year. There may be more, but these are all I have found so far. Again, feel free to have a butchers, as Cockneys would say- or have a look in more widely known language.

Both these novels feature characters who hail from the land of Calormen (see map below right) a hot and arid country to the South of Narnia, known as the Calormene. These people are dark-skinned, and many wear turbans or headdresses and carry scimitars, in contrast to the generally fair-skinned Narnians.

These Calormenes have been the cause of much controversy as people have concluded that they are obviously based upon Arabs or other Middle Eastern people, and their religion seems to resemble Islam in some ways.
C.S Lewis, best known today as the author of the 'Chronicles of Narnia' has been subjected posthumously to much criticism for his inclusion of dark-skinned Asian like people in the Na…

Shadows Over England #2 January 2nd 2018, Bethany House, 418 Pages Print, ebook, and audio 

Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a crucial task at the outset of World War I—to steal a cypher from a famous violinist currently in Wales.

Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he’s won—until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father’s work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only light he finds is meeting the intriguing Willa Forsythe.

But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn’t—that she must betray him and find that cypher, or her own family will pay the price as surely as his has.
