When I read the description of your book I thought it looked like it might be good. But when I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. I found it thoroughly fascinating, cover to cover. I understood things about history that I had never known before. And I was thrilled to find that it was written from a Christian perspective. It was concise, informative, and written in a very understandable and enjoyable way. My husband and older daughter are going to read it next and I am going to get some more copies to send to others whom I know will enjoy it! I am a homeschooling mom of eight kids, three who have graduated. The ones I am schooling now are too young for this book, but I can’t wait to go over this material with them as soon as they are old enough.

After reading your excellent book, King Alfred’s English, I feel compelled to write to commend you on such a delightful book. I have not read anything so interesting in a long time. Not only is the subject matter very interesting, your writing style is readable and entertaining. I will be telling other homeschooling Moms I know about your book. I look forward to having our children read it during their bookwork time as well. Thank you for the added helps available for free on your website. I think your timeline is great and have included that in our bookwork folder, too. May God bless your further efforts as you seek to glorify Him.
I am SO excited to be using this with my son this year! He’ll be doing this first semester and Shakespeare second. I have read almost the entire book myself! …Great book and great materials!

So it’s been a while and we’re finished with the book. Thank you so much! My son not only loved it but I see a change in how he pays attention to language.

I have enjoyed your book on the History of the English language more than you can imagine. I finished it last night and am getting ready to read it again…It was SO interesting, fun, Informative-captivating!!!
Last year, I read and thoroughly enjoyed your book King Alfred’s English. In January, I started teaching my children (four of them) from the Veritas History cards. The second event was the Barbarian Invasions…[and] over the course of three weeks, I read the first five chapters of your book and taught them all about how our language was changing from the time of the Celts to the time of the Vikings…We really enjoyed the study. I plan to continue with Veritas, but each time I reach an appropriate period of history, I will return to your book to discuss what is going on with our language. Thank you so much for this wonderful book. I just wanted to let you know that even 4th and 6th graders can benefit from it if they have a strong background in English and some experience with a foreign language.
