I stumbled across this book while reading the blog of an recent acquaintance that led me to the author's blog, and I love how the threads of our lives connect in these mysterious patterns. This subtle, hidden interconnection is also mirrored in "Strangers and Pilgrims" by Vivienne Tuffnell. The author brings a unique voice and style to her storytelling, one that caught me by surprise and kept me flipping the pages as fast as I could. I was compelled to pick it up and read it in every spare moment I found, finishing the book in a mere day and a half. I could feel the angst of each character and found myself sympathizing, cheering each one on, resonating with the deep pain and grief expressed by the men and women alike as "my heart is broken and I am dying inside." This is a beautifully crafted story!

I'm not one for writing reviews mostly because I'm just not good at it. In this case, I read the book initially because I noticed a review for one of my own novels by this author and decided to pick up hers. I discovered i really enjoyed her writing style, and I struggled for a long while as to whether I should review the book because I wanted to avoid looking like I was just swapping.

I offer that disclaimer in the spirit of transparency, but the book really needs none.

This story was so inspirational to me. I read it quickly during a few summer days after I first bought it and then opened it up again a few months later because I needed a pick-me-up. For me to read a book twice at all is saying something.--twice in a few months when I have a huge TBR already sitting on my Kindle is quite another.

Ms. Tuffnell's skills lean toward the literary, and while it's not a "Christian" book, it is undeniably inspirational. I felt rejuvenated, much like the characters themselves did by the end.

I won't go into the summary, as it's listed in the blurb and in other reviews. I just wanted to write about how much this novel touched me. Though driven from a point of pain and darkness, the light is very present in this story--so much so that it almost becomes another, periphery, character. It's the yin/yang of despair and enlightenment and it's delivered in a manner that begs the reader to continue.

I cared about these characters, and that matters to me in a read.

Six characters with different traumas/heartbreaks type the same sentence in a web search and end up accepted for a retreat at the House of the Wellspring, hosted by a mysterious Warden who never shows up - or does s/he? Six stories of self-healing through creating a relationship with another suffering human being in the era of Google and other web-crawlers.
I was very touched by all the stories (I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks even if not at their level) and loved the way the author matched the "illnesses". I won't spoil the fun for whoever would like to read this book, that I recommend even if you've never been depressed, or heartbroken, before.

I picked up this book on Nook first & I love it!

The incredible story is written in a way anyone can identify with the characters. Ms Tuffnell has a way of making the pages feel like you're talking to a dear friend. You're learning about the lives of the characters as if you are a part of the story. Each shift, each person feels alive within the pages. Each personal triumph a character experiences you find yourself (or at least I found myself) as delighted and proud as the characters themselves.

Few authors create such an easy read that lingers in your mind long after you've put it down. Thank you Ms Tuffnell for sharing such a warm heart and this incredible creation.

Six wounded strangers, each with a unique story of broken relationships and lost dreams, are brought together by a common need for the healing waters of a mysterious Wellspring. Unlike their 14th century forebears who tell their stories on the road to Canterbury for the prize of a free meal, these pilgrims seek something far more vital: a reason to keep living. What they discover about each other, and most importantly, themselves, makes for a compelling, page-turning read. I was very drawn to Tuffnell's characters who are as real, complex and confused as you and me, and I have a passion for the inner journey to self-knowledge that was the essence of their quest. But it is her extraordinary sensitivity to the mysterious beauty of the world around her and her passion for the legends, traditions and sacred spaces of her beloved England that took me from interested internet friend to ardent fan. I couldn't recommend this book more highly.
