This vivid and exciting historical adventure has a superb narration by Maggie Mash. Mash illuminates the story of a 13-year-old boy who is preparing to accompany Richard the Lionheart to the Crusades, bringing to life the developing love between the boy and the magnificent blood red stallion, Hosanna. Mash gives a sensitive and upbeat interpretation of all the characters, including a Muslim boy still filled with sadness and anger over his parents' death at the hands of Christians. She soon has you caring deeply for everyone in this multilayered tale. This is a book that truly has something for everyone. D.G.
