Its Friday again, and the last day of June tomorrow. Time passes so quickly, especially when I realize I have been part of this group for more than one year.
At the moment I an 'reading' two Regencies The Innkeeper's Daughter by Michelle Griep, and making my way through the audiobook of A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter.
Well, I was just under halfway through the latter, and have completed two more chapters on my Kindle. So listening and reading.
However, I decided not to include either of those in today's post. Instead, I am choosing a book from my Kindle backlist, which I am trying to make my way through this year.
The Baron's Ring by Mary C. Findley is an Allegorical Fantasy novel, which I have had on my Kindle- you've guessed it, for years. Noticing a pattern?
Tristan of Parangor fights his crown prince brother's ignorance and godlessness until he is swept a hundred miles downriver and a world away from his royal life to the tiny town of Larcondale. Forced to make a living and wait for the Lord's time to return home, Tristan becomes a farrier, teacher, and encourager to the town's minister and all its people.Idolatry and occult Dforces make Tristan's struggles heavier but he finds friendship and budding love as he works and waits.A seemingly insurmountable tragedy presents Tristan with an opportunity to increase his power to do good. Day by day he struggles to learn the lessons God has to prepare him for the moment when the past and present collide and Tristan must return to his kingdom. He has no idea that he will face old enemies and find unexpected friends.
And the First Line Reads......
Tristan stood at the farthest edge of the crowd at his father’s funeral, his height allowing him to easily look over the heads of most of the attendees.
Don't know about anyone else, but I do like the name Tristan. Its from the Medieval Literature originally. Don't forget to click the Meme and see what all the other members are reading, or post with the First Line of the book you are reading.
