Product description


Pilgrim State is an extraordinary memoir that may become a word-of-mouth hit in the same way as Andrea Ashworth's Once in a House on Fire or Lorna Sage's Bad Blood. Throughout this intensely personal book, the fierce love and pride that the author feels for her mother punctuates every sentence. This will be read by mothers and daughters alike, and both will find a resonance in the lives of these two women. (Kate Bradley, The Bookseller's Choice)

From behind the boarded up windows of one of Americas most awful psychiatric institutions emerges a most profound woman: Dorothy Walker, who spirited her family to the relative safety of Great Britain despite enormous odds. A wonderful, deeply moving book. (James McBride, Author of The Color of Water)

"Haunting, powerful and beautifully written, Dorothy's story resonates long after the final page." (International Woman's Month Magazine)

Fine, honest writing and acute personal insight . . . Jacqueline Walker has written this fond, striking memoir as a homage to a brave and beautiful woman. (Iain Finlayson, The Times)

Book Description

This stunning memoir is the story of a mother and daughter, and the incredible ties of love and loss, set over 20 years from New York (1940s) to London (1960s).
