Editorial Reviews

"In The Sign of the Carved Cross, Lisa Hendey shows us what a modern girl and a saint from 1675 have in common. You'll find yourself relating to the characters, though you might be surprised by how. This isn't just a fun read: it’s a chance to walk with a great saint." —Sarah Reinhard, author and blogger, SnoringScholar.com
 
"Simply put, this is a beautiful story that leaves you wanting more. The Sign of the Carved Cross, the delightful second book in the popular Chime Travelers series, will leave young readers feeling confident after journeying through some powerful lessons that affect all school-aged kids today."  —Jennifer Willits, co-author of The Catholics Next Door: Adventures in Imperfect Living

"Lisa Hendey has always had the ability to inspire and lead other Catholic moms. Now, with the warmth and care of an experienced mother, she demonstrates her ability to offer inspiration to their children, too."  —Jared Dees, author of 31 Days to Becoming a Better Religious Educator
 
"The Chime Travelers series is sure to delight even as it introduces you to your favorite saints as approachable people. The adventures these books share will make you think, teach you both history and faith, and inspire smiles and chuckles. You won't want to put them down, and you'll definitely want to share them with everyone you know!" —Sarah Reinhard, author and blogger, SnoringScholar.com
 
"From baptism to confession, catechesis to church history, the smells of incense to the chime of the church bells, Lisa Hendey uses the beautiful, everyday elements of the Catholic faith to bring the Chime Travelers stories to life. With engaging dialog and scenes set to transport you back in time with Patrick and Katie, the fullness of Catholicism is taught in a way children can comprehend and are sure never to forget."  —Allison Gingras, blogger and radio host
 
"Here is a whimsical series that will capture young readers’ imaginations while feeding their souls. Hendey has created a fantastical adventure series with a conscience that reminds readers of all ages that with God all things are possible." —Kate Wicker, author of Weightless: Making Peace With Your Body
 
"Imagine if you could travel back in time and meet the saints in person. Through the eyes of the Chime Travelers, Lisa Hendey helps us do just that! She brings them to life in a way that is fun and informative, while encouraging us to live their examples." —Fr. Cory Sticha, Pastor, St. Mary’s Parish, Malta, Montana
 
"Beautifully written, capturing the readers’ attention and imagination, this is a wonderful weaving of the lives of saints with those of the characters. The Chime Travelers books capture many questions children this age ask about their faith and how can they truly serve God." —Carmie Gennock, Catholic school teacher
 
"Hendey’s wonderfully imaginative and faith-filled stories will delight young readers, while at the same time deepening their understanding of central Catholic beliefs: the saints, the sacraments, active love for family, friends, and strangers, and active life in a Church community.  In the spirit of the parables, Jesus’ preferred mode of teaching, Hendey’s books delightfully achieve two goals at the same time:  enchanting our imaginations and deepening our faith.  Present-day kids meet centuries-old saints in stories that are at once surprising and compelling." —Rev. Lou DelFra, CSC, co-author of Five Minutes with Christ: Spiritual Nourishment for Busy Teachers and Five Minutes with the Saints: More Spiritual Nourishment for Busy Teachers
 
"Lisa Hendey's Chime Travelers series delivers Catholic values in an entertaining fashion that will delight the young and young at heart. This father of five can't wait for the next volume." —Pete Socks, The Catholic Book Blogger
 
"Lisa Hendey loves her faith, and that love shines through in this book. Young readers will be entertained without realizing they’re also learning a little more what it means to be a Catholic." —Rachel Balducci, author, How Do You Tuck In a Superhero, and co-host of The Gist
