Davis Bunn is known for writing in many different genres of fiction, but I still think his wheelhouse is adventure and action. There are many readers who specifically look for that genre by him and yet he is so good when he writes in other genres also.
The Pilgrim prove that Davis is also able to to mesh two of his favorite genre, Biblical and adventure. This is the story of Empress Helena who is traveling from Ceasarea to Judea. She has been abandoned by her husband because of her faith, but still journeys on for her faith.
Along the way she meets many people, some who help and some who try to harm her, but she remains faithful the whole way. Changing not only other's lives, but her own also.
"The unforgettable Story of the discovery of the True Cross... with its vivid portrait of one of Christian history's most important women."
