Title: Rules for a Knight
Author: Ethan Hawke
A knight that is out on mission fears that this will be his last battle. Before he perishes at the hands of another he wanted to teach his children back home the lessons and values of a knight. The teachings of a knight is not something that comes easy and at times it would be hard but he assures his children that these qualities are very important and should be practiced by everyone not just knights.
The book is made is sections each with a main focus, solitude, humility, forgiveness, honesty, courage, grace, pride, and patience. Each quality comes with it's own important lesson. Not one quality is greater than the other and if learned / practiced together this story would have taught more than just this one knight's children. From father to child.
Thoughts: I had no idea what I was going into when I picked this book up and I am greatly surprised at the outcome. The values of the story are very touching and lasting in their teachings. I feel like this book can be read by not just adults but younger children as well. It is a quick read and very good I enjoyed it a lot. I would HIGHLY recommend.
