Martin of Gfenn is an award-winning work of historical fiction, the story of a young artist living in Zürich in the mid-thirteenth century. When he is nineteen, Martin contracts leprosy. He fights physical deterioration and social stigma to do what he believes he was meant to do – paint fresco. His short journey takes him from the streets of a swiftly growing Zürich to a to a small enclave of the Knights of Saint Lazarus, in the village of Gfenn.
I believe — and have been told by some of Martin of Gfenn’s readers — that people who enjoyed Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth will enjoy Martin of Gfenn AND my second novel, Savior and Savior’s stand-alone sequel, The Brothers Path.
Both Martin of Gfenn and Savior are IndieBRAG Medallion honorees. Martin of Gfenn was named Editor’s Choice by the Historical Novel Society Indie Reviews in 2015.
This novel is available in all online bookstores, available from Amazon as paperback and Kindle available at Barnes & Noble in hardback, paperback and for NOOK.
