Giron is considered to be a great new voice in Christian Fiction and writes fiction with a mission. Influenced by epic tales such as Rings of Power and Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, the book will be of special interest to homeschoolers
WILMINGTON, NC, November 06, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — It is always difficult to find a gift for teachers. More so for homeschool teachers. Supplies are always welcome of course, but can be uninteresting and a bit boring. The same with quiz books or software. For homeschool teachers, student boredom can be a real issue also. There is one gift for homeschool teachers that can solve both problems, and is guaranteed to catch the interest of home school students 12 and up – The Victor, by best selling author Marlayne Giron.
Giron’s highly praised Christian Fantasy Fiction e-book, ‘The Victor’, was heavily influenced by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. In the tradition of Stephen Lawhead and Elizabeth Chadwick, Marlayne Giron writes epic fantasy fiction centered around traditional Christian values. Her work has been compared to ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ and has an endorsement by New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee on the front cover.
Destined to become a classic, the new book is an inspirational historical fantasy fiction book written for ages 12 and up. This spellbinding tale is set apart from other Christian fiction books by her subtle but powerful method of presenting Christian principles embedded in a majestic adventure that is gripping, riveting, and engaging for readers of any age. It is perfect as a home school resource for both English and history curriculum.
As noted on Giron’s website, a companion lesson plan is available for advanced Language Arts students in upper middle school through high school. The Lesson Plan explores the language and Biblical symbolism of the novel and works especially well for Christian homeschoolers. Because the Christian Bible plays such a powerful role in history and sociology, the book is recommended for non-Christians as well.
The lesson plan contains a vocabulary list, chapter summary questions, pronunciation guide, guide to allegorical symbolism, short biography about the author, and a bit about the armor that knights and their horses wore during medieval times. End of chapter questions about content are interspersed with ideas for further study, and essay topics.
The Victor and its Lesson Plan work well with the Classical Conversations method of home schooling. According to the Classical Conversations website, “Classical Conversations is a proven Christian homeschool program created by parents for parents. We do this through a Christ-centered and family-friendly approach to homeschooling that makes everything biblical and hospitable, focused on three simple key areas: Classical, Christian and Community.
Our home education program covers K-4 to college credit and includes college degree opportunities for parents, as well. We believe that you are the best educator for your student, and we make the homeschool journey doable. We not only provide you with a consistent roadmap that you can follow at your own pace, but also connect you with a local homeschool community group, giving you accountability and the support of knowing you are not in this journey alone.
From its origins in 1997 with eleven students and parents in the basement of Leigh Bortins’ North Carolina home to proudly serving over 45,000 families now enrolled in its programs spread over 50 countries globally, Classical Conversations always was and always will be about family. The Bortins family has always valued following God’s guidance in teaching other families how to “train up their children in the way that they should go.”
The student workbook is available at no charge at Giron’s website at https://thevictorbook.com/download-the-free-student-workbook-and-chivalry-studies/.
Readers and reviewers have praised the book. Robert Heath, Founder and Director of Kids for Christ/USA, stated, “The Victor is an absolute ‘literary masterpiece’ that should be required reading in High Schools across the land. In fact, if there was a required reading list for Christians, The Victor would have to be on it.”
NY Time bestselling author Tosca Lee said, “The Victor is an epic adventure of love, loss, and triumph over evil. Giron’s characters leap off the page into medieval battles, jousts, quests, and romance. Fans of Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and medieval fantasy will not want to miss out on this classic tale!”
Karen Koch, former editor of the Christian Home Educators Association of California Magazine stated, “I loved this book. The author had me at castles, sword fights, and a gentle romance, but the novel reveals an eternal story of good vs. evil that is much deeper than just what’s on the surface. Middle and high school students (and their parents) will love this account of adventure, drama, betrayal, sacrifice, and ultimate victory.”
Kathi Macias, bestselling author of nearly sixty books said, “Author Marlayne Giron has woven together a fast-paced adventure and a tender love story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, even as they are caught up in the lives of believable characters, both good and evil. The Victor will introduce – or reintroduce – readers to the majestic story of the Bible, a story of love, redemption, and victory. Though aimed at high-school aged readers, adults will be captivated by it as well. Highly recommended!”
The book is currently available at Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Marlayne-Giron/e/B09YQPRVL7/ref=dp_byline_cont_pop_book_1.
