Reading Corner: Hittite Warrior

I was introduced to the novel Hittite Warrior by Joanne Williamson, while I was babysitting for some friends. One of the children had it out on the kitchen table for a school assignment. Meticulously-researched and well-written, this engaging historical fiction story tells the tale of a fugitive Hittite boy living during the time of the Israelite Judges. The adventure deftly weaves Biblical facts amidst a wide background of ancient civilizations, showing readers the interrelatedness of ancient cultures. It's a great read for ages 10-up.
