I enjoyed this book very much. I was swept into the stories of each character, and the thing I liked most about each one was their very humanity. Flawed they may be, but the writer painted each person with such compassion that their flaws did not define them - we saw beyond their guilt, their ego, their jealousy, their loneliness and despair. Six individuals on a uniquely modern-day pilgrimage for acceptance, and isn't that what we are all searching for? Acceptance of ourselves as we really are, without the cloaks we sometimes feel pressured to wear or the unhealthy habits we may acquire to be acceptable to others.
Exquisite characterisation combined with some truly sublime descriptive prose made this as rewarding a journey for me, reading, as it was for the six pilgrims whose journey I shared. It touched me at a deep level - I even met the Warden in a dream one night - make of that what you may, but it was good.

When I first read this I was faced with a dilemma; It is such a page turner that I couldn't read fast enough and yet at the same time I did not want it to finish.
You become part of the story and part of the journey and you feel so connected to the characters as their journey unfold. Simply fantastic.

This book captivated me from the very beginning. I loved the way in which the author used description, not just to set the scene but to introduce the characters as well, and to show their pain. That skilful touch was evident throughout the book, as the six main characters are drawn together by their need.

There is a sense of mystery woven throughout, a feeling of something otherworldly and powerful just out of sight: but this is not a fantasy. These people feel real, their hurt is authentic, and their situations all too recognisable. It's very clear that the author understands and feels their pain. But she also brings compassion and hope to the story, and in the end that was the message I took from this - that there is healing, there is a Wellspring for all of us. One of the most encouraging and uplifting books I've read.

It's hard to say what I liked most. There are wonderful transitions between storylines, a gripping plot that never gets bogged down, and surprise endings. The characters are real and personal without extra baggage. The brief description of characters on the back is a great bonus for those easily distracted or with limited time.

I had the privilege of reading this book when it first became available - I loved it. So why haven't I written a review before? Well, I offer these reasons: I'm not the sort to push myself forward... I like to think books stand on their own (- but that shows a remarkable naivete regarding the book industry!) And as a voracious reader, ex-English teacher and bibliophile of excessive proportion I have met many good books worthy of note over the years. However, having read this first offering from Vivienne Tuffnell I also felt: how could I possibly do this book justice? I am no wordsmith, unlike the author. If I was to say the characters are good, that would be to underplay the most fascinating group of full-rounded and believably crafted characters I had come across in along time - the sort that stay with you long after you have put the book down, that wander with you through your daily chores, that you catch yourself pondering about as you drive to work. The basic premise of these six people all with their broken hearts coming to find a solution, may not in such bald terms seem immediately enthralling, but just you wait until they grab your own heart-strings: they don't let go! And as other reviewers have said, the compulsion to read on is a forceful one: I too had a sleepless night and blurred eyes in the morning (as witnesses can testify!) Over and above these excellent elements of a good read: good plot, good characters, etc is the sheer skill of the writing: the exciting juxtaposition of concepts and ideas, the relevant vocabulary choices and ultimately the delicate manner in which you are led yourself to the peace of the 'Wellspring', make you yearn for more as you close the book.

I saved up reading this lovely novel until I really needed it and was not disappointed. Six strangers and pilgrims come together on a quest for healing, from many walks of life. The urgent sense of quest and the many ways in which souls seek for it is beautifully and sensitively expressed here. The aching in the heart for the seemingly unattainable is something all people share, and the answers to that deep prayer are remarkably different and often closer at hand than we first thought. A recommended read that supports the reader in times of trial, providing a sustaining vision of how we change and heal at the edge of need.

You can't stop there, I NEED to know what happens next!! I really need to know about the chest, a book in its own right, but I also want to know how the future works out for them all.
A very well thought out & written storyline, the characters are so well written you get so involved with them, cheering them on & you feel a real need for things to work out for them. The author paints such a detailed description of their lives & emotions they seem more real than some real people! The turn at the end wasn't what or who I was expecting, I loved it, so cleverly written. Unlike many books the end was the end, it answered all your questions & more. A lot of books leave you wondering what happened or what it was all about, or they leave you with a list of questions, not this book everything was answered & explained. Having said that a sequel would add on very nicely, I would love to know how things turn out for them all......... Especially the story of the chest!
My first book by this author, definitely not my last, in fact I have just downloaded Away with the Fairies. 👍
