Item Description...
It's the year 1212 Jerusalem is occupied by Islam. Thousands of Christian Knights in armor have failed to liberate the Holy City. Who else will the Church send to fight for the faith? More knights? Peasant laborers? Or...their children? Crusade of Tears will transport you back to the 13th Century the dark era of the Children's Crusade, when 50,000 French and German children were falsely inspired to reclaim the Holy City. Author C.D. Baker masterfully paints an unforgettable portrait that blends thoroughly researched historical accounts with a compellingly personal plot that focuses on a small band of pilgrims, led by stouthearted Wil, his eager brother Karl, and their gentle sister Maria. This realistic story of faith in the midst of extraordinary hardships will speak to you from across the centuries and far into the future.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderfully written  Feb 17, 2008
I haven't actually finished this book, but I am so impressed with how well it is written that I had to write a review. The author does a wonderful job of placing you right in the middle ages --it is clear he knows of what he writes with descriptions of clothes, and the way the characters speak. Yet all the medieval description is part of the action --it is not the author stopping the story to tell us how much he knows about the middle ages. For example, the clothes are described when one of the rich boys on the crusade is robbed of his fine clothes and must disrobe.
The characters are real and complex. Not sure right now who the "good guy" is as all the main characters sometimes do bad things. This is what makes them so real. Despite the length of the book, it is proving to be a fast read because once I start a chapter I want to finish it. So far I have not come to any boring passages. Usually I find myself skipping pages when the author goes on with long passages of descriptive language or plot exposition. This author keeps the action going and the reading brisk.
Can't wait to finish this so I can read the next books in the series. I am really surprised at how good this is!!
Crusade Of Tears  Jan 23, 2008
I have just completed reading this book. It was given as a Christmas present and I really love the content. We know nothing of the suffering of the people of the dark ages other than what we can gleen from books such as this one. I highly recommend it to all ages as it shows us what we enjoy and have today because of what others have done before us.
Children's Crusade Gallant and Sad  Apr 20, 2006
I read this for my bookclub and we all enjoyed the book in general. The story is very sad but the characters all held our interest; the journey was long and hard. The ending somewhat predictable.
Unbelievable!  Dec 3, 2005
I have now finished this and the second book in the series and can't wait to read the third. I had never heard of the Children's Crusade before and it is unbelievable what these people went through and their bondage to the church and their pennance. I highly recommend this series. I will never forget these people.
