“The Journey” is a novel about St Nicholas, one-time bishop of the city of Myra in Lycia, modern-day Turkey. Using hearsay about the great saint – that he was involved with the incense trade and that he travelled to Egypt, Arabia and the Holy Land – as the framework, David has used his own extensive knowledge of the Near East and its peoples to weave a fascinating recreation of the life of Nicholas around the historical scaffolding of the late Roman Empire, to show how Nicholas has become our very own Santa Claus.
