Book review

As one of the great sculptors during the last half of the twelfth century in Catalonia (southern France and northeastern Spain), today the artwork of the Master of Cabestany is well known, but nothing is known of his life. Heaven Walker is the fictional account of his life and times.
The location of the novel on the Costa Brava (Spain) and in Roussillon (France) is exciting and real. The sites and cities exist today, including the amazing Sant Pere de Rodes monastery and the Jewish Call in Girona, Spain. The time, the twelfth century, is an essential period in the modernization of Europe: a time of the “Convivencia” in Spain, where Mozarabs, Jews, and Christians worked together translating classical knowledge into Latin, which detonated the closed and dated thinking in Europe. It is a time of tremendous artistic achievement. Twelfth century sculpture ranks with the greatest sculpture of all time: Vézelay, St. Sernin, Autun, Moissac, St. Denis, Chartres, Santiago de Compostela, Ripoll, to name a few. All can be visited today. It is a time of conflict between competing classes and the church. The artwork of the Master of Cabestany served as the skeleton of this novel.
Most importantly, the story is exciting, rapidly paced, filled with intrigue, and addictive from page one to the denouement. It is the first literary exposition of Catalonia at the height of its Mediterranean power, the first of the oubliette (a medieval torture chamber), and the first of the Convivencia in Spain. The novel will open your eyes to the high middle ages and the men and women who lived during that remarkably important and turbulent time.
