The Broken Road by B R Collins

‘There’s going to be a crusade. A boy came to the cathederal and preached. He’s going to lead a crusade of the children . . .’

Rufus is an apprentice in his father’s goldsmith workshop in Cologne. He is one of many who fall under the spell of Nick, a charismatic preacher whose promise to lead a journey to the Holy Land is mesmerising. Mesmerising enough for hundreds to leave family and safety and follow him. But despite Nick’s charisma, he is flawed, and the crusade that Rufus embarks upon with so many others turns, terribly, into a journey of failed dreams and broken promises.
