THE SAINTLY OUTLAW
Andrew Perry likes history, but he never expected to experience it firsthand.
But that’s what happens when he meets the unusual Eve Virtue, a direct descendant of the explorer and entrepreneur Alfred Virtue. Eve has uncovered Alfred Virtue’s greatest secret: the mysterious Radiant Stone. Before Andrew knows it, the two of them are in twelfth-century England, caught up in the adventures of the saintly outlaw Robin Hood.
THE WARRIOR MAIDEN
In The Warrior Maiden, the second book of the series, Andrew and Eve have just returned from their time with the legendary Robin Hood in 13th century England (told in The Saintly Outlaw). But their return isn’t easy. Through an accidental touch of the Radiant Stone, the two are transported to 15th century France. Without the Radiant Stone in their grasp, Andrew and Eve don’t know how they’ll ever return to the present. Yet they cling to the hope that they are in the past to serve a purpose. Circumstances bring them into the company of the young Joan of Arc as she seeks to fulfill God’s mission to overthrow English domination and make France’s volatile prince into the true king of France. Taken on as her “guardian angels,” the two time-travelers experience first-hand the trials and victories of the “Warrior Maiden.” At every step, they learn to trust God, even while hoping to find a way home again – and some unlikely characters may have the answer they need.
The Virtues Chronicles follows the adventures of 12 year-olds Andrew Perry and Eve Virtue as they contend with the mysterious Radiant Stone – an ancient jewel with the power to send them back in time. The legends of the Stone, and the remarkable history of its discoverer, Alfred Virtue, unfold from story to story in a series that explores the wonder of God’s universe, but the many saints and sinners who have impacted it through time.
