The Bronze Bow
The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare
This is another good book. It won the Newbery Medal! (one of the highest honors of children literature). This story takes place in the time of Jesus Christ when the Jews and the Romans were at odds. In this story you go on a journey with Daniel as he struggles with his feelings of hate towards the Romans. Throughout this story, Daniel learns to let his hatred go, forgiving, not forgetting, but forgiving those who hurt him.
