Here it is, the book for January. The Door in the Wall by Marguerite De Angeli. I have never read this book, but it looked very interesting. And not a girly book :).
It is a story about a young boy named Robin. And throughout life there is always a "door in the wall." Robin learns what this means with a handicapping illness, separation from his parents, and a castle siege. Set in Medieval England during the time of the plague, the story focuses on Robin's development of character. The novel takes in the sights, sounds, and smells of a bustling medieval city and contrasts them with the calm serenity of a monastic community; it describes the nature of travel on the highways and byways of medieval England.
That's got me wanting more. I will be posting the question soon. Hope you can join us.
If anyone finds an audio link like last time, please post it. Thank you.
