The Pilgrim's Book of Hours by Marta Iyer
A Baroque Migration

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Every road trip is a transformative odyssey.For musicians Eve Haji and Alex Owen, crossing the Great Plains in an unreliable car with stolen instruments in tow, it's a race toward an unknown destination with memory and hallucination in hot pursuit.Behind them lie twisted university politics, frustrated ambitions and unrequited love. Along the way, Mozart and Beethoven accompany their tentative friendship, while an eerie fairytale unfolds in parallel against a backdrop of big spaces and small towns.And ahead? The two haunted eccentrics aren't sure. The mountains? Freedom? Absolution? Perhaps the restoration of hope.
