“Saints and Heroes” is a study in contrasts – between royal master and wise scholar, between loyalties to God and country, and the strange bond between two diametrically opposed people
LINCOLN, Neb. (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
Every person has a past stretching far into the world; however, not everyone knows their family history. Andrew Schultz, a writer and professor, has researched and explored his family heritage and brought it to life in his novel, “Saints and Heroes” (published by iUniverse), which is getting a renewed marketing campaign in 2015.
Schultz’s inspiration for the book was his mother’s background. She was a British war bride and a Menteith, one of the original seven ancient earldoms of Scotland. This inspired his interest in researching and learning more about his family line and the history of ancient Scotland.
In “Saints and Heroes,” Schultz explores Scottish history as his book follows the story of Anselm through the rugged Isle of Iona. Anselm has always been fascinated with all things Biblical and historic and begins studying to be a priest. As he develops a friendship with Prince Malcolm Canmore, the novel quickly turns into a fast-paced adventure as they journey to establish Catholicism as the official religion of Scotland.
Schultz’s story reinforces the idea that even the most ordinary person can have a lasting impact on history if he remains true to his beliefs.
“I believe that people are heroic, that they can aspire to living heroic lives, and that by reading about people who prevail despite all evidence to the contrary, ordinary folk, like myself, can make their lives have significance,“ Schultz says.
