ANGELINE CAN HARDLY BEAR the blistering heat, the noise, the sea of faces crowding in upon her in the teeming Egyptian market. But most of all, she cannot believe that she is being sold as a slave to one of the great princes of Cairo. It was only a short time ago that she left her small village in France to follow Stephen, a shepherd boy whose vision led him to mount a children's Crusade to the Holy Land. But now they have been tricked, and, doomed to a life of slavery in a foreign land, even Stephen has lost all hope. 
    Karleen Bradford returns to the Crusades and vividly recreates medieval Cairo, a rich and cultured city where Muslims, Christians and Jews live peacefully, side by side.

Stunned by the blistering heat, the noise, the sea of faces crowding in upon her in the teeming Egyptian market, Angeline cannot believe that she is being sold as a slave to one of the great princes in Cairo. Only a short time ago she left her small village in France to follow Stephen, a shepherd boy whose vision led him to mount a children's Crusade to the Holy Land. But they were decieved by those who offered to help. Now it seems they are doomed to a life of slavery in a foreign land and even Stephen has lost all hope.
Somehow, Angeline mist find the strength to survive, as well as to help Stephen overcome his despair. But first she must learn to understand and respect the ways of a culture so very different from her own
