The story ...
The story teems with action, pageantry and intrigue with finely conceived characters-the beautiful, saintly Clare, Frederick, the hawk-faced King of Sicily and Holy Roman Emperor, the Sultan Al Kamil, Pope Innocent III. The scene shifts from Assisi, Rome and Sicily to the deadly sands of Egypt.
This book was made into a feature film by 20th Century Fox entitled Francis of Assisi, now available on video from Ignatius Press.

I really enjoyed this very engaging portrait of one the most influential men in Christian History. The story of St Francis is compelling and the historical context provided is facinating. This book brings to life, as only historical fiction can, both the man and the period. I was genuinely inspired. I would actively seek to read more of Mr. de Wohl's work!Was this review helpful?
