The Juggler's Gambit

$35.95

It is not an easy life for an English juggler in Twelfth Century Spain. Survival means juggling, not only his knives, but dancing nimbly between the clash of cultures of the sophisticated Moors who conquered the land centuries earlier, the Christians who stubbornly fight to take back Spain, and the inscrutable Jews who have made a home there for over a millennium.

 

Despite their irreconcilable differences, the collision of the three cultures would produce Europe's highest civilization at the time and arguably the most preeminent in the world. When fate thrusts upon an itinerant juggler a secret that can change the world all three great cultures will stop at nothing to possess it.

 

Will the street skills and cleverness acquired from a life on the road be enough for the juggler to accomplish his sworn mission and remain free?

 

About the Author:

Research for this book took the author from the dusty archives in Seville to fortresses in Marrakesh, from Barcelona to Lisbon. Although he has always had a passion for history, he holds a Master's Degree in Behavioral Disorders from Marshall University, which he says was a necessity when one considers five children.

 

His resume includes teacher, garbage man, marine carpenter, bouncer, wood carver, and of course juggler. He lives in Huntington, WV with his lovely wife Sharon.
