It’s 1923, and Paris is beginning to recover from the ravages of World War I and the Spanish Flu Epidemic. Naïve young American Muriel Ross stumbles into a plum assignment photographing antiques for a globetrotting U.S. senator. But events take a dangerous turn when she discovers that her employer is on a mission far more momentous—and potentially deadly—than a mere shopping trip. Soon, Muriel is enmeshed in a covert alliance dedicated to authenticating a fragment of the True Cross—and protecting it from those who will stop at nothing to steal and discredit it.

The Fragment

I read some of his earlier books, and loved them. However this one was too much about "romance".

Joel Dancingfire
Great historical fiction

Though I read them in reverse chronological order, I found The Pilgrim and The Fragment both exciting and uplifting.
There is a need for good historical religious fiction. These both fill the bill well.
I found The Pilgrim more inspiring but less accurate geographically - but that was of little importance. The are both great reading.

Very good

I enjoyed this book more than expected!

Worth your time

This was the first time I read a book by Davis Bunn and it definitely won't be the last. The Fragment was an enjoyable read and the story held my interest. I also learned from some of its historical details. As a history buff, I always appreciate that!
