The Emperor's Winding Sheet ePub and PDF Available
This was a very interesting book about the seige and fall of Constantinople. It is rare to find children's historical fiction about this event, and this book was very enjoyable.

The author pulls you into the events around the coronation of the last Byzantine emperor by introducing a boy from England who wound up in the area after escaping from pirates who had kidnapped him. He is kept as a servant to the Emperor against his will. It is for his own protection, but it also serves to appease some of the superstitious in the community. The boy becomes a sort of good luck omen. He gradually comes to accept his circumstances and has a unique viewpoint of the events leading to the ultimate conquest of the city.

Although the tone of the book is a bit gloomy (you know what will happen in the end,) the story is very engaging and the characters are very real. It is almost a coming-of-age story as well, as the young boy's life is changed and he grows up somewhat as he watches the people and events in the story.

This book is probably for older teens because of some of the subject matter. We used it as a read-aloud for homeschool, and it was simple to skip over some of the more disturbing passages that another reviewer has mentioned.
