About the Book

Enchantments of the Haglady explores a young girl’s dream world and a young boy’s struggle to survive. Each overcomes heartbreak, misfortune, and calamity through their strength of character and belief in themselves.

Enchantments of the Haglady walks the line between historical time travel and fantasy, balancing the two with ease as it explores the travels of two orphans—a girl from the twenty-first century and the other a boy from the eleventh century. They grow strong in spite of their tragedies and meet on the docks of Venice just before the First Crusade.

The enchantments will transport the reader to ancient lands of pirates, shipwrecks, kidnapping, an emperor and an empress, a princess, first infatuation that crosses over centuries, and the always-present and mysterious Haglady.

About the Author

Alan R. Smith spent 37 years as a Marine serving on both Active and Reserve duty. He has traveled extensively throughout the world studying people and their cultures. His passion is bringing stories to students from elementary school to the university level. He has found all his students and friends love stories of where they “have not been” and once they find history as a story, not facts to be memorized, they want more of history’s “characters.” His goal is for his readers to wrap themselves with the clothes of the story, inserting themselves in the past.
