The Good and the Beautiful Short Story Collection by Various Authors


Level 11

The Count of Harcourt came forward to Richard, bent his knee before him, took his hand, and said with a broken voice and heaving breast, “Richard, Duke of Normandy, I am thy liegeman and true vassal;” then rising from his knees while Rainulf de Ferrières went through the same form, the old man covered his face with his hands and wept aloud.

When eight-year-old Richard is thrust into the role of Duke of Normandy after his father’s tragic death, he has no idea of the danger that awaits him. The years following are fraught with challenges far beyond his years, but the Lord uses those experiences to bring young Richard to repentance and true humility. Readers young and old will appreciate this excellent historical fiction story filled with positive role models, sound historical facts, and an engaging plot.

Drop a stone in the water and see how the circles spread, growing wider and wider. After a while you cannot see them, but you know that the motion you have started must go on and on till it whispers against the pebbles on the farther shore. So it is with a good deed or an evil one; we see its beginning; we cannot see what distant shore it may reach. So, no one will ever know the full amount of good this noble woman has done.

Laura E. Richards tells the story of Florence Nightingale with such graceful style that one can hardly tell it is a work of nonfiction. The author’s ability to masterfully weave historical letters, poems, and quotes from prominent people of the time into the story gives readers a thorough look at the extraordinary life of Miss Nightingale.
