The Story of Friar João da Esperança


Included in the National Reading Plan, “The Story of Friar João da Esperança” (includes CD) narrates the journey of Lourenço who undertook the journey alone to S. João de Tarouca, on behalf of his sick father. The goal of the protagonist, who, among minstrels, thieves and merchants, faces and overcomes the dangers of the road with bravery and a good heart, is to become a novice at the Monastery, which is still under construction.

It is this persistence in the journey between Lamego and Tarouca, in which historical research and rigour abound, that transports the reader to the 12th century…

This is the third book of the “Varosa Valley” children’s collection, after “The Santa Maria de Salzedas Monastery: the ants, the jay and the stones” and “The Painter’s Angel”.
