Smart and spirited tale  Jul 8, 2008

The evil Lord Reginald rules his lands with a cruel eye and greedy fist. Yet he lusts after the legendary treasures he believes are hidden deep within the stone fortress of Bennington Abbey. So he plots to capture the Abbey, drive out the monks and keep the land and treasure for himself.

Plucky, thirteen-year old Willie Reed lives with his father in a hut along the creek on Reginald's land. They are so poor he is forced to steal bread from the Abbey. When Brother Andrew catches him, he offers Willie a chance to redeem himself. The monks know that Lord Reginald is planning to capture the Abbey. They enlist Willie as their spy. Caught with the stolen bread in his hands, and preferring his freedom over the cloistered monastery life, Willie has no choice but to accept their offer.

Thus begins Willie's sojourn into Kenswolde, Reginald's world of noblemen, servants, banquets, and an army with a secret plan. He quickly finds a friend in Portia, a cook's helper. But how can two young teens ever manage to outwit an army of brave knights to save the Abbey? And what about the hidden treasures?

In "Willie of Bennington Abbey", Rachelle Cox cleverly weaves the magic of earth and spirit into a war of wits combined with a valiant treasure hunt. Think Robin Hood meets the DaVinci Code. Thirteenth century England comes alive with adventure in this smart and spirited tale, with plenty of twists and turns to keep young readers turning the pages.
Willie of Bennington Abbey  Feb 24, 2008
This is the story of a medieval boy's adventure to help protect the local abbey from the greedy aims of the local lord. Willie is a mischevious but kind hearted boy with a penchant for slinking around. But he isn't good enough to escape the clutches of a firm but understanding monk.

Thus starts the tale of Willie's intercession in a plan to sieze the abbey for the personal gain of Lord Reginald. Willie enlists the help of one of the girls in the castle to spy on the lord's meeting with his knights and learns their plans to take the abbey by force. Willie escapes back to the abbey to tell the monks all about it. He even helps helps the monks thwart the attack while maintaining their wishes to do so without fighting and doing real harm. And in the process, he helps the abbey discover the truth about an ancient tale of treasure.

This is a quick moving book that is sure to entice young readers. The dialogue between characters draws you into the period and gives a good glimpse into that time. It is a good read for boys and girls alike.
