Lion HeartBook - 2013
Richie Cathar was named after his father's hero, Richard the Lionheart. His father, Alaric, believed that Richard and Robin Hood had met and found a document which was to prove this. In his father's footsteps, Richie travels to Jerusalem where he falls in love with an journalist who is kidnapped in Cairo. In the course of writing about the Crusades, Richie discovers that the True Cross, lost to Saladin in 1187, was recovered by a small band of Richard's knights. He embarks on a quest of his own to find the True Cross - and to discover whether or not everything in his father's mind was a fantasy.
