Sylvia by Bryce Courtenay. A paperback historical novel.

Sylvia, Bryce Courtenay

Regular price €3.99

From master storyteller Bryce Courtenay comes a 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 as austere and frequently cruel existence in a convent, she fights to be true to her destiny. And her mysterious birth-mark causes much confusion: can this peasant maid indeed be a chosen messenger?
