Reader: Where Red Deer Run ~ Jenny Robertson (Columba) Complete, then book basket choices. A few have asked us about this books.  It is a harder title to get a hold of - we happened upon one at a 2nd hand bookshop years ago.  It's a smaller book with only 94 pages yet we saved it for now due to the theme of Bel being chosen as a human sacrifice.  Here's what the back says:

Bel loved the glen with it’s tumbling burn and the shy red deer. But sickness and death come to the glen and the priests say that the gods demand a sacrifice. Bel is the Chosen One.  Then St. Columba, a monk from Ireland,  brings news of a sacrifice already made by The King of Kings
