CATCH OF THE TEMPLAR CROSS is a fictional romance story that is weaved around actual events and folklore of the 14th century.
The Knight’s Templar plays a pivotal role in the saga after King Phillip IV of France imprisons hundreds of Templars in 1307. This forces the remainder of the Order to go into exile…some finding their way into Swiss Territory.
The events unfold through the eyes of a feisty, young wife and mother of the times-along with her community of mountain people living in Aeschi, Switzerland.
Events are historically correct…touching on landmark struggles that were endured by Swiss mountain farmers as they tried to keep their autonomy in a land that was over-seen by the Vatican and Austrian government warlords.
Writing this story has had special meaning for me—it will be the only one I will ever write about Switzerland and Templars.
Was it reincarnation?—I mean—it was 700 years ago. Was it such a profound display of love, camaraderie and purpose—that it bled through my thoughts like a footprint onto my pages?
Following the timeline of actual events—this story effortlessly filled in the blanks and took on a life of its own.
It is categorized as fiction—but I can only wonder…
