Publisher's Summary

When Prince Baudouin's infant son, Alexander, grows to manhood, he sets out for Camelot to avenge his father's death. Years before, his father was murdered in cold blood by Alexander's jealous uncle, the King of Cornwall. The young Prince Alexander journeys to Camelot seeking justice, but his path is diverted, first to a dark tower where he is bewitched by the sorceress Morgan LeFay, and then to a beautiful young woman named Alice, who has also experienced many dangers and adventures on her pilgrimages to the Holy Land. As they journey on together, their connection grows beyond their separate purposes and blossoms into love, the greatest mystery of all.

Would you try another book from Mary Stewart and/or Samantha Eggar?


Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Stewart again?

Might try some of the old, earlier books.

What didn’t you like about Samantha Eggar’s performance?

Not sure if it was the presentation or the material.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Prince and the Pilgrim?

Not so much of editting/cutting but maybe more character development in the beginning

Any additional comments?

Missing the 'magic' of her earlier works. Could always count on being transported by her superb storytelling. It's a pity but it seems the last couple of works are thin and lacking in substance.
