A talented cast enhances a story that combines history, mystery, action, and miracles. In a structure reminiscent of THE CANTERBURY TALES, 10 travelers meet at an inn in medieval France. The 10 narrators evocatively portray the characters while adding drama to the cumulative tale of three gifted young heroes. Jeanne, a peasant girl, envisions the future; Jacob, a Jewish boy, has healing powers; and William, a young monk of African descent, has uncommon strength. The narrators use accents to suggest class, with each contributing to an overall tone that is conversational, lively, and engrossing. Together, the narrators enhance the stories as they stress the interplay of humor and darkness, prejudices and beliefs, legend and truth. S.W.
