Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Pilgrimage tells the story of one man's search for redemption. Jean Bellimont - scribe to the Bishop of Troyes - journeys to Santiago de Compostella to seek absolution for murdering a beggar woman. On the way, he is charged with retrieving a stolen relic, becomes involved in deadly disputes between the Church and heresy, and befriends a nun, a former crusader, a heretic, and a hunchbacked dwarf. Set in 13th Century France and the first of a trilogy, the novel draws a convincing picture of a medieval pilgrimage wrapped within a compelling story of true drama that lasts until the last page.

Very episodic with an extremely annoying and cheating ending


Wendy

gwen

An enjoyable read and a good twist at the end.


Dagmar Georgiadou

I just kept on reading, couldn't put it down for long! And the ending...


mp fdos

Great! Well paced, interesting, well informed. I have done part of that same Pilgrimage and I can tell that the author had done a lot of serious research. Thanks for writing!


DAVID DUNN

Good story. Good twist at the end.


phil

Keeps going at a good pace most of the time and the surprise ending was superb. Even looking back afterwards, impossible to see it coming!


brian stocker

good series of books by Trevor Whitton read them all and all are first class


Graham Chapman

This is an excellent read at several levels, and provides some interesting history lessons as well. The characters and the times are brought realistically to life. Mr Whitton has written 3 novels in this series based on Jean Bellimont. I recommend you read them in the sequence they were written. Pigrimage is first, then A Fatal Homecoming, and finally A Convenient Solution. If you read them out of sequence it may spoil some surprises for you. All three novels in the series are well worth reading. I very much hope Mr Whitton writes many more.


brian stocker

very good read hard to put own


Cathy Fields

The book had an interesting enough premise but the characters, dialogue and the action were as two dimensional as the pilgrim's path they followed, fearing to venture off the road. The "surprise" twist at the end was a gimmick that added nothing to the story.


Rachel Rosenfeld

What an ending!!! I enjoyed this book so much.

i really enjoyed this book - I felt it captured the period well, lots of atmosphere and detail. Great twist at the end - didn't see it coming! will look for other books by this author.


avidreader

Interesting plot, well rounded characters and really evokes the era. I liked the humour threaded through the story and the twist at the end caught me by surprise.

Compelling read, will definitely read more by this author.

Remarkable story of great historical value. Stunningly realistic description of the christian world in the middle ages.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Trevor Whitton

I am a retired recruitment consultant with a strong interest in European medieval history, and endeavor to weave that knowledge into my story lines. My travels throughout Europe (and particularly France) over the past thirty years allows me to bring a first hand account of the places I describe, and provides an air of authenticity to my narrative. I am a passionate and committed writer, and Pilgrimage is the first of the series featuring Jean Bellimont, Scribe of Troyes.
