it was amazing

I loved this book! Gatty from Crossley-Holland's Arthur trilogy is the main character in this one. It's the 1200s, and Gatty is asked to accompany a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. It's one of the few fiction books about the middle ages where I felt the faith was genuine, not just another quirky character trait. And there are some key emotional points that the author totally nailed as well. Lovely.

(I might add that this is the American version of Gatty's Tale.)

Dawn I started his Arthur trilogy, but didn't finish it. How would you rate the trilogy compared to Gatty's Tale?

Rose If I was going to own just one of them, I'd take Gatty's Tale.
