“The reader is transported back to the earliest days of the settling of America by the sworn statement of one Charles Wentworth, who came to Plymouth soon after the Mayflower landing. The powerful influence of religion and the church is portrayed through his struggles with both his humanity and his faith, as Charles mourns the tragic loss of his betrothed while at the same time reveling in the death of the 'savages' who must be conquered to create a safe new home. This is a great work of historical fiction”
-- Carol K., Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL

"The Pilgrim" is a gripping account of a love-torn Puritan's spiritual struggle for redemption. Charles Wentworth, a heartbroken Puritan, has abandoned his faith after the death of his betrothed. Now he must travel to Plymouth in hopes of being freed of the temptations that torment him, never expecting to encounter again love amid a world of discovery and danger.
