KIRKUS REVIEW

A torpid 13th century tale centers on the friendship between English Meg, daughter of Sir John Humphreys, who lives in a Crusader castle in Syria, and Miriam, daughter of an eminent Syrian scholar. When the news came that her family was to return to England to Lay claim to their manor house at Greenacres, her joy was lessened at the thought of leaving Miriam. Before departure Miriam proved a true friend, for she helped Meg and her family to escape massacre as resentment in the villagers against the family came to a crisis.
