The Destiny of Miro by Julie Rae Rickard
The story of one man's spiritual search, "The Destiny of Miro" begins when Miro's father, answering what he feels is a request from God, kills his family. Only eight-year-old Miro escapes. As the man dies, he curses his boy, shouting, "you cannot escape your destiny!" Miro turns and runs from his father but is forever haunted by this tragic phrase. Aided by a mysterious "white lady" and an animal guide, Miro's thirty year journey to find his true destiny takes him on a cross country tour of medieval England. Along the way he learns to love all God's creatures; develops his own psychic powers; finds and loses his soul mate; and finally learns only he is responsible for his happiness.
I don't remember how I got my hands on this book, it sat on my shelf for years. Finally I read it and loved it. It is a historical novel with a Christian message. I usually don't read things about medieval England, that's too far back for me, but this one I really liked. I recommend.
