Far from a mere account of Charlemagne’s conquests and battles, Sebastian’s Way is a moral tale of dramatic perplexities, of character, of faith, of the medieval world view, and, not least, of love. Though action and adventure abound, the novel is a colorful medieval stew, rich with the authentic stock of the times: savage warriors, courageous, ground-breaking clergy, salty peasants, and plenty of memorable maidens for those who like a good romance.


“It is dangerous to be right in matters where the established authorities are wrong,” said Voltaire. He might have been describing the theme of Sebastian’s Way, a potent story of two men: Charlemagne, “The Thunderer,” who fights and rules like the savage pagan enemies he seeks to conquer, and one young warrior, whose vision challenges the king to forge a new path to peace.
