Day 94 / 104 - Crispin: The Cross of Lead
Another three weeks have passed, so it's time to tell post about another Literature assignment.
Crispin: The Cross of Lead is set in 14th Century England. Crispin is a serf and peasant boy who finds himself without direction and without help as he is falsely accused of a crime. Like in most memorable novels, Crispin's true identity is unknown to him throughout most of the story. His life changes when he discovers who he belongs to.
My son and I loved this book. I finished it in two days (mostly due to my poor planning, but also because it was difficult to put down). Completing his assignments on Invention, Arrangement, and Elocution came easier this time since my son loved the story so.
