      From the Publisher:
      There is a mystery woven into Big John’s young life that he must solve.
      Raised during the strife-filled days of the reign of King John of England, in a
      rude peasant village by “Old Marm,” John understands that injustice has been
      done his family and that Old Marm is preparing him one day to reclaim his name
      and family honor. He must avenge his unknown father! But Old Marm dies, and he
      is left without a clue to his name. In the next years John’s unusual size and
      strength (and the knowledge he has gained of letters and of the art of healing)
      earn him a place as page to an earl organizing the 5th Crusade. In the Holy
      Land John searches for a father he hopes is living still. Amidst battle,
      capture and setbacks, John—now a squire to a Knight Hospitaller—encounters Francis
      of Assisi, who had come to the Holy Land just at this time to preach the
      Gospel to the Saracens. As John perseveres, Francis helps to bring about the final
      outcome.
