In the year 1199, Arthur de Caldicot is as different from his family as he is from his namesake, Arthur. Yet, looking in his seeing-stone he begins to wonder about his own heritage and the conflicts in the world around him. Michael Maloney's narration mirrors the short diary-like chapters of the book with a voice full of the frustrations, joys, hurts, and fears of a boy becoming his own man in a time of rigid societal roles and expectations. Filled with stories viewed through Arthur's compassionate eyes and heard in Maloney's fully-voiced presentation--this subtle yet brilliant picture of life on a medieval manor leaves vivid images in our minds long after we've finished the book.
