Other June Story Time PM Dates - June 10
 
The Sign of the Broken Sword by G. K. Chesterton
 
Father Brown takes Flambeau on a pilgrimage to the tomb of internationally revered war hero General Sir Arthur St. Clare. The general died in battle in Brazil, and part of the monument, lying next to the statue of the general, is a broken sword, the way it was found at the end of his last battle. No one knows the real story behind how the sword was broken, except Father Brown.
