Pilgrim Paperback / softback
by Louise Hall
Deeply moving and evocative prose. Haunting, tender yet hopeful. Pilgrim is a beautiful read that lingers. - Carmel HarringtonIn this cynical age it's a joy to encounter such sincerity, and wonderfully unexpected to see contemporary fiction as a profession of fervent yet gentle faith.
Louise is a brave and humane writer, a breath of the freshest air. - Donal RyanAfter a major row with his wife, Sarah, Charlie Carthy storms out of the family home.
Just hours later he finds out that Sarah has become the victim of a hit and run driver and is in critical condition in hospital.
Sarah's death and Charlie's self-absorbing grief throws their daughter Jen's life into turmoil.
Will an unwanted pilgrimage to Medjugorje heal Jen and Charlie's relationship, or, should Jen prepare to lose her remaining parent?Told with a deep humanity and grace, Pilgrim is a story about a man who feels he has nothing to live for, and a daughter who is determined to prove him wrong. A nuanced and moving exploration of grief and faith. Unique subject matter based around the famed Medjugorje apparitions. The author already has a dedicated readership built up from her two non-fiction books on Medjugorje.
This is her first fictional take on the story.
