The Keeper of Songs
In this story, an entire nation has chosen to live under the wickedness of the Curse of Blood in return for peace and security, not realizing how it corrupts them to do so. But one man sees, and it's up to him and his son to break the Curse and save their people, at great personal cost to them both. A beautiful story of sacrifice and redemption.

Singing Wind
The tale of a very beautiful young girl, who discovers that beauty can bring its own problems. When she is kidnapped by a cruel witch who envies her, she finds that no one has the courage to help her escape, except for the boy who loves her. This story is loosely based on a Native American folk tale.

Bran the Blessed
In this story, a young woman is deceived into marrying a foreign King who secretly hates her, but everyone ignores her plight because it might endanger the fragile peace. Only her brother Brandon is willing to fight to rescue her, but no one will help him because of the danger. This is a story of how Bran learns to rely on God in terrible circumstances. Loosely based on several ancient legends of Wales and Ireland.

The Land of Fear
When her village is about to be destroyed by an invading army that demands a mountain of gold before sunrise, Elisabeth decides to take it upon herself to get it for them. She enters a mysterious and forbidding forest in search of a rumored treasure, but what she finds there is completely different than what she expected.

The Way of Zoe
This is the story of a sorrowful young girl who lives alone with her mother in a cottage in the mountains, and seldom smiles about anything. When she finds an injured bird in the woods and heals its wounds, she begins an adventure that leads her to happiness at last, although in a very unusual way.

The Ballad of Sarah de Bretagne
The tale of a young woman who doesn't believe in love anymore, and of the young man who loves her and tries to convince her to change her mind. She refuses to listen until it's too late, and they finally part ways. Then she realizes how much she misses him, and after thinking about it for a while he decides he's simply got to see her again, and he goes looking one last time. Set in the Middle Ages in Britain and France. A classic tale of romance and love.

From the Publisher:

"Beneath a Star-Blue Sky" is a collection of sometimes exquisitely beautiful stories with the power to deeply touch the reader's heart.

From the Author:

This book was written for all the children and teens who sat and listened to these tales with shining eyes in the dusk of a summer's evening. Storytelling is a fluid art in which the response of the listener has much to do with the final form of the tale, and these stories bear almost as strong an imprint of the listeners as they do of me. My humble thanks to them all.
