Item description for Crown of Splendor by Michael Freeman...
Overview "Faith is doing what is right even if, at the moment, it seems impossible." With these words, a treasure of immeasurable value is entrusted to the Templar Knight, Hugh de Saint Clair. It is the year 1307, on the very eve of the Templar's brutal suppression by Phillip, the King of France, and now Hugh must flee back to his homeland of Scotland and deliver his charge to Roslyn Castle. For Hugh to complete his mission, he must escape ruthless agents of the Inquisition, contend with slave traders, and above all, keep the contents of a plain wooden box from falling into the hands of Phillip or those of his lackey, Pope Clement. Crown of Splendor is a deftly woven tale that takes the reader on an exhilarating journey from the back streets of medieval Paris to the forests of the Scottish lowlands.

Crown of Splendor...a compelling read Aug 8, 2005
Beautifully written. The characters are alive and vivid, and very memorable long after reading the book. I am eagerly awaiting the sequel...I've enjoyed the journey so far and look forward to its continuance.
Wicked good Jun 28, 2005
Made me really appreciate how difficult it is to write a well developed story that keeps a reader interested (because it is). Mr. Freeman has set himself apart through his knowledge of the subject matter. It was a nasty (good) page turner, and i am waiting impatiently for the next installment.
Crown of Splendor Mar 29, 2005
Crown of splendor takes you on a compelling journey through physical trials and spiritual growth. Wonderfully written with characters that stay with you long after the last page has been turned.
Well-written with deep, well developed characters Feb 7, 2005
This is a fantastic book! Michael Freeman's knowledge of the culture, history, and languages, of the time period (Spanish Inquisition) is astounding. I couldn't put the book down and I thought about the characters when I wasn't reading, and long after I finished the book.
