Ten in Time
When they went to school that day, the ten children had no idea that their lives were about to be drastically changed, or that they would be transported into the Middle Ages and end up in the midst of a battle that would change world history. Constantinople, under siege by the Turks, was about to fall. Cannons would fire, ships would burn, screams of charging Turks would fill their ears. Follow the students as they encounter the famous Italian soldier Guistiniani, and as they fight by his side. Meet courageous Emperor Constantine XI, who, though hugely outnumbered, fought the Turks to the death to protect his city. Could the children help save the city which the Roman emperor, Constantine I, had named for himself, and which so long had stood as a bastion of Christianity? What was the purpose of their sudden arrival there? Would their faith stand the test? Would they ever get home? Patricia (Pat) Guthrie, a former teacher who has taught in public, private, and home school situations, has always loved writing. Over the years, she has written poems, short stories, book length stories, research papers, and newspaper articles. Serving as an educational missionary in Brazil with her husband, Weston, Pat has had rich and varied experiences in her lifetime, for which she is grateful to God. Loving and serving young people during her husband's ministry as a Presbyterian pastor was a great joy to her, providing lasting friendships. In 2002, Pat helped found the classical Christian school Covenant Christian Academy in Max Meadows, Virginia, where she taught a variety of courses over a seven year period. She has three grown children and four grandsons and now lives with her husband in her hometown of Pulaski, Virginia.
