Heaven Walker: The Story of the Master of Cabestanyby Michael Barnes Selvin
The location of the
The artwork of the Master of Cabestany served as the inspiration and skeleton of this novel. As one of the great sculptors during the twelfth century in Catalonia (southern France and northeastern Spain), the Master of Cabestany is well known today, 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. The time, the twelfth century, was an essential period in the modernization of Europe. Twelfth century sculpture ranks with the greatest sculpture of all time. It was a time of conflict between the nobility, church, and growing bourgeoisie.
Most importantly, the story is exciting, rapidly paced adventure, filled with intrigue and romance, and addictive from page one to the denouement. 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.
