The Book of Boy by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

Title:  The Book of Boy

Author: Catherine Gilbert Murdock


The Book of Boy is, I have to say, a very enjoyable and endearing story. Set against the medieval backdrop of 1350, declared a Holy Year by the pope, the plot is a simple, ‘episodic’ adventure-quest written in a simple style and with an unforgettable cast of characters. Each chapter is a story unto itself, little insights about life are provided along the way.

This easy read is a perfect ‘break book’ (read amidst a series of heavier writing) and it can be finished in a sitting (tea or coffee recommended).
