Glastonbury Tor Reviewed

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Book Description: When his mother dies, sixteen-year-old Colin is consumed with hate for his harsh, demanding father. Looking for a true relationship with Christ and purification for his hateful heart, he journeys to the historic monastery at Glastonbury, within whose walls lies the Holy Grail. In this captivating novel centered around Glastonbury Tor (Hill), a young man seeks salvation as the Catholic Church finds itself in turmoil during the reign of Henry VIII.

My Thoughts: Not only was this a great coming of age story of young Colin, it was a great history lesson too, on how our Bible came to be, and the struggles it went through. If you have teens in your home, I'd say turn off all the electronics, and hand them this book they will be transported back to a time an place and will experience what they watch and play on their video games! Highly recommend!!!!

Thanks, Andi. I hadn't thought of Glastonbury Tor reflecting some of the themes of video games, but you are right! I hope your readers enjoy it.
