This book contains the first published translations (into any modern language) of the complete works of a thirteenth-century Anglo-French writer who identifies himself by the mysterious name "Chardi" (perhaps an anagram of "Richard"). He is the author of two particularly imaginative versions of legends about Christian saints: The Life of the Seven Sleeper and Tice Life of St. Josaphaz. Both of these stories are among the most remarkable products of the complex cultural interchanges that took place between East and West throughout the Middle Ages. Seven Sleepers recounts the legend of seven young men from the city of Ephesus, who are rescued from persecution only be a miraculous sleep that lasts for over three centuries. The protagonist of Josaphaz is essentially a version of the Buddha himself, who is depicted here as a beautiful young prince of India converted to Christianity, but then subjected to a series of deceptions and temptations at the hands of his doing but tyrannical father. The third of the three works ascribed to Chardi, The Little Debate, is a philosophical dialogue between two representative figures, an Old Map and a Young Man, who together present lively and dramatically contrasting responses to the problem of human suffering in the world.

2 March 1810 . . . Today, I fell in love. At the age of ten, Miranda Cheever showed no signs of Great Beauty. And even at ten, Miranda learned to accept the expectations society held for her—until the afternoon when Nigel Bevelstoke, the handsome and dashing Viscount Turner, solemnly kissed her hand and promised her that one day she would grow into herself, that one day she would be as beautiful as she already was smart. And even at ten, Miranda knew she would love him forever. But the years that followed were as cruel to Turner as they were kind to Miranda. She is as intriguing as the viscount boldly predicted on that memorable day—while he is a lonely, bitter man, crushed by a devastating loss. But Miranda has never forgotten the truth she set down on paper all those years earlier—and she will not allow the love that is her destiny to slip lightly through her fingers . . .
