Bradford turns the clock back to the events leading up to Angeline, her most recent Crusades bestseller. The Scarlet Cross is a gripping fictional account based on real history: the story of a young shepherd boy, Stephen of Cloyes, who, through a holy vision, was commanded to raise up a children's crusade to march from France to Jerusalem. These children hoped to accomplish what grown men had failed to do: restore Jerusalem to Christendom. With a rich historical canvas of thousands of children - some as young as seven, many orphaned, others malnourished or ill - on a five-month-long journey, The Scarlet Cross is an intimate first-person story of a very real boy who is full of questions about his faith and his ability to lead. Radford's blend of adventure and insight will instantly capture the hearts and minds of adolescent readers as they grapple with their own life's journey.
