  1. Book one of this Women's History series is ideal for young/reluctant readers. This series is a perfect way of acknowledging Women's History Month.

I came across this review for The Templar and the True Cross. It was written by Joseph Kindoll for Knights Templar Magazine.

It is the autumn of 1314. The Knights Templar are no more, and their Grand Master has been consigned to the flames. De Molay’s dying curse has already claimed the life of the Pope whose machinations had sent him to the pyre. In these troubling days, one exiled Templar is summoned back to Paris by King PhilipIV himself to solve a mystery - to discover what has happened to the true cross of Christ. The uncompromising Knight, Jean-Marc de Montpellier, obeys this summons in spite of the prior actions of his monarch. As he delves deeper into this mystery, he
finds himself caught up in a web of intrigue that threatens to claim his life...or even worse, his honor.
The Templar and the True Cross is a historical thriller by Canadian author and teacher Stephen Gaspar. Fans of historical fiction will find much here to enjoy. Gaspar masterfully weaves action, mystery, politics, and religion into a compelling story.
While his protagonist is a character of his own invention, many other personalities
in this novel are historical figures. The book has the feel of being very thoroughly
researched, but it still manages to be a page-turner.
I would highly recommend The Templar and the True Cross to any fan of Templar fiction.

The Templar and the True Cross is now available on Kindle!
