Summary
The first instalment of a thrilling new crusader series in the style of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell. France, 1096. Crowds gather in Sens to hear the man known as the Hermit speak. He talks of a pilgrimage to the city of Jerusalem, one filled with promise for the Christian soldiers who march with him. Sybille knows the perils of the road ahead, but she has no choice. Her husband is a reckless gambler, easily swayed by the Hermit's words. She must follow her husband and join the great pilgrimage. For Odo, the pilgrimage is all. It provides him an opportunity to demonstrate his faith and piety. His brother Fulk seeks relief from boredom and the restraints of apprenticeship. He craves adventure and excitement. Jeanne and Guillemette have been treated badly by the men in their life but this is their chance for redemption and a brighter future. But life on the road for two women alone will be perilous . . . On the long road to Jerusalem, right and wrong, love and hate, virtue and sins will become blurred. Each must survive as best they can. Who will live to reach it - and will the sacrifices they must make to get there be worth the price they all must pay?
