My Guardian Angel is about a young Jewish girl, Elvina, growing up in France at the time of the Crusades. Her village becomes very fearful for their lives as the Crusaders camp nearby on their way to the Holy Land. Elvina relates the tension of the times through personal accounts and "discussions" with her guardian angel.

This book was interesting from a historical perspective. Today it is important that we remember the persection and horrors of the Holocaust so we never let this happen again. It is also good to recall that atrocities of man against man in the name of religion have occurred at other times in history. This book is important in this regard. It also gives incite into a culture based in religion but haunted by superstitions.
