Description
Inspired by the 15th-century Book of Margery Kempe, considered the first autobiography in English, this "funny and wise book about friendship, loyalty, and love" (Karen Cushman), for young adults, looks at Dame Margery Kempe's habit of making religious pilgrimages through the eyes of long-suffering servant Johanna. Commanded to march the long miles with the Dame on the way to Rome, Johanna must then fetch water, wash clothes, and cook for the party of pilgrims while they rest. When fighting between her mistress and the other travelers leads to Dame Margery turning her back on them all, Johanna finds herself stranded in a strange land, and forced to make her own pilgrimage.
