In the year 1203, nine pilgrims set out on a pilgrimage. The journey - on foot, on horseback and by sea - is fraught with danger. Not all of them will come safely home.

All the pilgrims endure aches and pains, homesickness and terrible loss; they are prey to thieves and murderers; but it is Gatty, whose impulsiveness lands her in desperate trouble, who is transformed by the experience.
