The Whisper in the Ruins
Patrick and his twin sister Katie are shocked when they learn that someone threw a brick through the St. Francis of Assisi stained glass window at St. Anne’s. What would make someone angry enough to damage the beautiful old window? And how will the church ever be able to repair it? The twins want to investigate, but before Patrick can learn anything, he’s swept into another adventure—in the year 1205!
Patrick’s second Chime Travel journey takes him back to Assisi, where he meets a brave young man who wants to leave his family’s wealth behind so he can answer God’s call in his life. Young Francis invites Patrick to help him repair an old church, but Francis’s father is furious with his son’s decision and will do almost anything to stop him. Can Francis and Patrick follow God’s command to rebuild the church? And will Patrick’s time in Assisi help him solve the mystery of the broken window at St. Anne’s?
Book 3 in the Chime Travelers series, exciting new chapter books ideal for children in grades 2-4.

Gave it a 5 star because your books are all good. Don't have feedback yet from our grandson. Next year, put this out earlier, maybe during Lent - I got the e-mail the day after his 1st Communion & the day of our local parish 1st Communions. Got the books for him because I wasn't real thrilled with what I did send the previous week.
