Quick Overview

His head turned upward, Prince Oswald spoke. His lips shaped the words of a prayer Luthwin could not hear. The prince’s hands held the cross higher, and then he gave his command. “We will stand every man where he is.” The army within hearing stiffened. “We will not fail. Let them press in on us. Fight where you are.”
The prince’s face shone with confidence that spread to his men. Luthwin sensed the sudden surge of strength and courage.

“I have so small faith, God, my Maker,” Luthwin whispered. “But I do believe. Strengthen us!” He glanced at the cross in Oswald’s hands. The Saxon army had no need now for the golden banner. He stood beside Twi, ready for the enemy to close in and crush them. But he was not afraid.

In long-ago Saxon England, the youth Luthwin finds himself caught up in firece conflicts between pagans and Christians, between princes seeking power and kingdoms, and between the gentle Celtic missionaries and the powerful Roman Church.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Helen Godfrey Pyke


Helen Godfrey Pyke has been teaching writing at Southern Adventist University (SAU) since 1987, where she sponsors SAU's Writers Club. Prior to that Helen taught elementary and secondary school. Her writing career began while she was still in college. Her first book, A Sword Unsheathed, was published in 1969. Helen has written and co-written several books over the years, including No Peace for a Soldier and Any Sacrifice But Conscience.

Helen is a native of northern Minnesota and a graduate of Walla Walla College. She is married to Teddie Pyke. Together they have three grown children and seven grandchildren. Their sons Greg and Doug are loggers in Alabama. Both Helen and her husband come from families historically involved in logging, which is the impetus for her most recent book Pinch River.

Gardening, historical research, and walking are Helen's passions. She loves to cook fresh produce from her garden as well as pizza and chocolate chip cookies which are as varied as the stories she writes.
