Wings of Dawn by Sigmund Brouwer

I found a copy of WINGS OF DAWN at a local book exchange store, and thought "Why not?" Since then, many friends have shared that it is one of their favorite books - also out of print!

Sigmund Brouwer writes with simple yet elegant prose, weaving a tale of mystery and intrigue. WINGS OF DAWN follows the journey of a young orphan, Thomas of Magnus, in the dark ages of Europe. Thomas embarks on a quest to save England with a string of companions - he doesn't know until the end who is truly on his side. Will Thomas find his origins? Will love find him in the process? Cross history with an unsung hero while he tries to uncover secrets long buried and a destiny awakened.

As Christian fiction goes, it doesn't get much better than this. I would suggest this to readers of any age for the simple, clean writing...while still maintaining a page-turning story. The historical twists make the plot plausible, and the characters are relatable. This is a book to treasure, and will end up in my dream home library someday. Happy reading!
