read Beloved Pilgrim

As a man a knight As Elias he travels to the Holy Land to adventure passion death and a lesson that honor is sometimes found in unexpected places Elias must pass among knights and soldiers survive furious battle deadly. I ve been interested in the Crusades since reading a book referencing it some time ago so jumped at the chance to read and review Christopher Hawthorne Moss book Beloved Pilgrim It s also the first Harmony Ink title and transgender story I ve read One of the things I loved about Beloved Pilgrim is that it doesn t whitewash the horrors of the Crusades As Elias loses his misconceptions about the glory of all of it so does the reader It s not written so that it hits the reader over the head but it s a gradual process which makes it realistic It s not only the Elias journey from Elisabeth to the man he becomes but it s deeper than thatIt wasn t only Elias who sucked me into the story but also Albrecht Like Elias he has his own journey starting off as lover to ElisabethElias brother accompanying Elias as his suire as they head off to the crusades and finally finding his own happy ending Beloved Pilgrim is written with much attention to detail although isn t bogged down with it The location and time period comes alive on the pages but it doesn t pull punches with the difficulties Elias faces with how to hide while in the company of men that his body is that of a woman s Despite living as a man he still has to deal with a woman s biology and I liked the way the author didn t skip around that A thoroughly enjoyable 5 star read which I d recommend to anyone wanting to read a story set during the crusades I also found it a very thoughtful intelligent and sensitive portrayal of a young man in a woman s body there is a need to books like this in the YA section of the library
