    Christopher Hawthorne Moss can easily hold his own with some of the best historical fiction authors out there I don't make that assertion lightly I've read a LOT of historical fiction over the years from the classic Jean Plaidy to the 'fluffier' Phillippa Gregory and know what makes a storyhistorical events come alive Moss has brought the medieval world to life the Crusades the egos of the nobility and clergy the stench of massive columns of pilgrims trying to make their way to Jerusalem as well as the circumscribed lives of medieval womenElisabeth of Winterkirsch knows she's different She knows deep inside that she's not meant to be female Not just on a superficial level but in her soul This novel is his journey Elisabeth's journey to becoming Elias Elisabeth took on the name of her twin brother who passed away as well as Elias' journey to becoming a man in deed as well as truth It is also brutal bloody yet filled with amazing characters and lasting friendship My only issue was the rather abrupt happy ending BELOVED PILGRIM could easily be a longer novel

    A gripping war tale well written expressive and inclusive of the middle ages era with descriptive battle scenes and how lives were lead during those brutal times Love is lost taken by death and new love is found oaths are taken as pledges are broken beliefs born anew as hopes are shreddedEliasbethElias with all her heart knows she is who he is and when his twin perishes an opportunity presents itself he takes charge of it with his all Elias’ follows the path set; he adjusts to wearing the weight of the armour and the ways of men fairly confidently and with determination to find news of their father Some hiding is necessary with the risk to his identity being compromised which Elias resolves with the much needed help and support from his Suire AlbrechtI feel in love with Elias his discovering the beauty and love of women Finding a woman to love him as he does her heart and soul Elias' so sort after freedom does come but with determination and defeat defending his people and those who travelled the gruelling journey to Jerusalem the challenges he took on Keeping his honour and his promises as best he could There are moments of naivety as Elias grows learning of life beyond his childhood“Maliha I love you I will try to come back But I have to warn them I cannot be responsible for their deaths if I can stop it I owe you and Tacetin that” ‘I owe myself’ EliasI found Elias was brave but afraid fearful for those he loved very often placing himself in danger to save comrades and those he felt were too vulnerable to protect themselves Elias is not particularly a heroic character but admirable for sure he makes valiant attempts after he becomes aware of the conseuences for another caused by his fears I loved that he believed in who he was and would redeem himself where possible honest where he could be Other knights took notice they gave him respect and despite his youth they considered Elias to be the man he claimed to beAlbrecht the ever loyal remarkable suire to Elias he is a beautiful young man with strength of the heart and mind Albrecht serves and sacrifices much for Elias protecting and knowing Elias' secret as Elias keeps Albrecht's own secret locked tight to his chest The pair make the pilgrimage swear fealty to each other much of Elias' survival is due to the service and teaching of Albrecht Both young men experience and share guilt shame longing grief and uncertaintyThere is a love theme; the love is displayed in many ways throughout the story from camaraderie and friendships to new lovers and experiences The love scenes are delicate and well thought out although romantic episodes are short they are effectiveFor those readers who have a fondness for horses throughout Gauner Elias’ horse is remarkable A brave war horse which served his master with a steadfast and courageous spiritA definite addition to my to be read again shelf Overall a well written historical tale giving to the possibilities of transgender men taking part in a war homosexuality and Transgender nonacceptance in the Middle ages the story also includes marital abuse brutality and exploitation of women and children along with pilfering and rapeReviewed by TeddyTo see of this review and others like it please visit us at Gay List Book Reviews at wwwgaylistbookreviewswordpresscom

    The idea of a woman masuerading as a knight has been done countless times before but rarely with the drive of trans identity as opposed to convenience or opportunity This was an exciting story well paced with solid writing throughout

    I’ve been interested in the Crusades since reading a book referencing it some time ago so jumped at the chance to read and review Christopher Hawthorne Moss’ book 'Beloved Pilgrim' It’s also the first Harmony Ink title and transgender story I’ve read One of the things I loved about 'Beloved Pilgrim' is that it doesn’t whitewash the horrors of the Crusades As Elias loses his misconceptions about the ‘glory’ of all of it so does the reader It’s not written so that it hits the reader over the head but it’s a gradual process which makes it realistic It’s not only the Elias’ journey from Elisabeth to the man he becomes but it’s deeper than thatIt wasn’t only Elias who sucked me into the story but also Albrecht Like Elias he has his own journey starting off as lover to ElisabethElias’ brother accompanying Elias as his suire as they head off to the crusades and finally finding his own happy ending 'Beloved Pilgrim' is written with much attention to detail although isn’t bogged down with it The location and time period comes alive on the pages but it doesn’t pull punches with the difficulties Elias faces with how to hide while in the company of men that his body is that of a woman’s Despite living as a man he still has to deal with a woman’s biology and I liked the way the author didn’t skip around that A thoroughly enjoyable 5 star read which I’d recommend to anyone wanting to read a story set during the crusades I also found it a very thoughtful intelligent and sensitive portrayal of a young man in a woman’s body—there is a need to books like this in the YA section of the library

    Elias born Elizabeth has never felt comfortable in the body he has and he comes to believe he's a man in his heart and mind After the death of his beloved twin brother he puts on his armor mounts his war horse and dons the pilgrim's tunic with its red crossWe go along with Elias to the Crusades and learn along with him that it's not pretty or honorable or holy Men are led into situations everyone is clearly unprepared for including the leaders they follow They're betrayed by those men who abandon them to the mercies of the paynim leaving them to die or be taken as slaves Elias and Albrecht find friendship and love but will they survive to return to their loved ones? I swear I could feel the heat suffer thirst and hunger along with Elias and Albrecht smell the unwashed bodies of men whose desire to reach the Holy Land has to do with glory and returning home with spoils than with freeing Jerusalem

    BELOVED PILGRIM BY CHRISTOPHER HAWTHORNE MOSSA wonderful story set during the crusades with the main character a set of fraternal twins boy and she boy A story of what doescan happen in this world whether the crusades or in our modern worldRead this story to understand that true meaning of gender is not always about the body parts but what is in the mind and soul A wonderful story to read and make you think about all the differences in each of us that makes us perfect in GOD'S sightI recommend this as A and a wonderful read for those with an open mind to ponder what is and what cancould be
