Mark Twain wrote: The government of my country snubs honest simplicity, but fondles artistic villainy, and I think I might have developed into a very capable pickpocket if I had remained in the public service a year or two.

A FAMILY VACATION. AN EXPLOSIVE DISASTER. A DESPERATE STRUGGLE TO GET HOME.
PILGRIMAGE is a stand-alone post-apocalyptic story of survival. It was previously published as three separate novellas: Crossing, Refuge, and Advent.
High School teacher James Rockwell is vacationing in Maine with his family, when an earth-changing explosion sends them on a race for their lives. Their first step is escaping an island in the midst of a tsunami, and it only gets more dangerous from there.
Can they find their way home as civilization crumbles around them? And if they do, what horrors will they find?
There's nothing new here. This is a trite, contrived story stereotypical of this genre. The characters are flat and not particularly likable. Worst of all, it's far too preachy, both religious and political.
It's better as one book. It would have been seriously frustrating as separate novellas. Although it doesn't end in a cliffhanger, the story is still unfinished. The question remains: How do they survive?
Kevin Pierce's performance is top notch. Too bad he had so little to work with.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
