214 pages2 hours


Amid swirling rumors of apostasy and witchcraft, star-crossed lovers Vincent and Sylvia make plans to flee seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts, in search of a better life. But their freedom will not come without a price, and the pair soon find themselves embroiled in a dangerous quest to vindicate not just their relationship but also Sylvia's very soul. In Sylvia Dashwood's Pilgrimage, poet Morgan Barnabus Valentine has crafted a modern epic that recalls the traditions of the English romantic poets in its imaginative breadth, skillfully interweaving a variety of mythic traditions and spinning a richly detailed tale that transcends boundaries as Sylvia and Vincent journey to hell and back in defense of their love.
