(From the publisher):
Torn between a desire to please his father, his romantic dreams of knighthood, and a persistent sense that there is something more he's called to do, the young Francis searches restlessly for his purpose in life. A mysterious gypsy craftsman presents him with a lute charged with the power of lightning. A hermit monk challenges him to listen to his inner longings. And a mystical voice in a broken-down woodland chapel compels him to a seemingly senseless task. Francis is finally propelled to a momentous decision - to cast off his merchant finery and take up the rags of a beggar. Over the centuries millions have come to follow him on his exuberant adventure through life. On the way they have discovered - as we can here - what it meant for him to become a passionate troubadour of Christ.
