MICHEL LORIO'S CROSS
Michel Lorio's Cross by Hesba Stretton.
Mont St. Michel is a granite rock formation off the coast of Normandy, France. Michel Lorio was a lonely Protestant that lived in the isolated Catholic community. Few residents greeted, or bothered with him at all. He found a friendship with the daring and spirited Delphine , that was carried on stealthily. Then the situation called for a hero . . .—Curiosmith (2010)

Excerpt from Michel Lorio's Cross:
"This is my cross, Delphine. I understand it better now. He loved us and gave Himself for us. Tell them, tomorrow, what I say to thee. I am as safe as thou art, tranquil and happy."
