You need three things to become a brave and noble knight:
A fair maiden.
A just cause.
Will has a horse—a small chestnut stallion with a white blaze in his brow. Ellie is a fair maiden, but she’s supposed to marry Will’s older brother, Gavin. And as for the cause, King Richard is calling for a Crusade. The Knights of England must go to the Holy Land to fight.
Will and Gavin will go. Blood will be shed. Lives will be taken. But through it all, two things will be constant—Ellie, and a blood-red horse called Hosanna. . . .
K. M. Grant was born into a large family that often found itself caught up in historical events—usually on the losing side. Stories of high adventure, most of them true, were part of everyday life. Married with teenaged children, the author now lives in Scotland and works as a writer and broadcaster. Blood Red Horse is K. M. Grant’s first novel.
