From master storyteller Bryce Courtenay comes the colourful epic of Sylvia. Late twelfth-century Europe is torn by religious intolerance. Sylvia, with a singing voice that can literally charm the birds out of the trees, and an acute and questioning mind that refuses to accept unreasoned beliefs, embarks on a pilgrimage. She joins the Children's Crusade, bound for the Holy Land. From a bawdy life as an entertainer in a whorehouse to an austere and frequently cruel existence in a convent, she fights to be true to her destiny. And her mysterious birthmark causes much confusion- can this peasant maid indeed be a chosen messenger? Sylvia is a tale of adversity, of adventure and crusades, and of a beautiful and gifted woman. brycecourtenay.com facebook.com/BryceCourtenay 497 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
