"Mr. de Waals inherited this unpublished, unedited manuscript from his grandmother, Elizabeth, after she died.
"The author, a journalist for the Anchorage Daily News, has written a fascinating and most unusual account of The Pilgrim family - "Papa" Pilgrim, his wife and 15 children - which homesteaded to Alaska to an old mining outpost in 2002. This sounds like an adventure; however, it was anything but. His actions are bizarre, and under the guise of a pious Christian family, he manages to captivate the local townspeople and even the U.S. government. This is a spellbinding read, and I quote from one reviewer: "A Pilgrim who was no pilgrim." This is a true story that will keep you thinking for a long time to come."
"ABSOLUTELY THE BEST book I have read all year! A riveting triangle of love, lust and deception! I couldn't put it down. This is Towles 1st book and I say BRAVO!" FIVE STARS!! *****
" I am a BIG fan of espionage spy books, but this might TOP THEM ALL! Matthews, a retired agent from the CIA, intimately knows all the twists and turns of their plot, set in present day Russia. You won't put this book down and wish there were more. Even recipes at the end of each chapter!"
