My Guardian Angel
Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
Mazal is a guardian angel. They say all Jewish people have one. Elvina hopes she does. Elvina is a young Jewish girl in Troyes, France during the times of preparation for the first crusade. Elvina is unique for 1096 because she can read, and write, and because of her free spirit. At times this gets Elvina in trouble, and so she needs the constant care of her Mazal. The early crusaders were a threat to the Jewish population of France. Therefore, the Jews wanted nothing to do with these early crusaders, and tried to do anything they could to get them to leave the Jewish people alone. Some came to Troyes, where Elvina and her family and friends lived. By reading this book, the reader gets to experience several other adventures of Elvina, showing life during these hard, and perilous times.
