Happy St Patrick's Day to one and all!

Just a little missionary trivia.....we've all heard the legend of the famous boy who played his flute and rid the country of snakes (some stories change "snake" to "rat") as they followed him out of the area. Who was the real Patrick?

According to the Catholic Church, he was born Maewyn Succat in Scotland around the year 387. Born to wealthy parents on the British mainland, he was kidnapped as a teen and taken back to Ireland as a slave. During his years in captivity, he was sustained by relying on his religious beliefs. After 6 years, he managed to escape and returned to Britain. In England, he received training from the church, had visions and returned to Ireland for the next 33 years as a missionary. Patrick was instrumental in establishing the foundations of Christianity in Ireland.

Last week's review was difficult for me because I just do not enjoy the sci-fi/fantasy genre. After putting needless pressure on myself to search deeply for hidden meaning in the story, I decided to try to enjoy it instead. In addition, in the beginning, I spent a lot of time comparing Overstreet to Tolkein. I'm curious, has anyone read any of the books in the Aurelia Thread? I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts.


The review can be found here..........
