Pilgrimage is a stand-alone post-apocalyptic story of survival. It was previously published as three separate novellas: Crossing, Refuge, and Advent.
High School teacher James Rockwell is vacationing in Maine with his family, when an earth-changing explosion sends them on a race for their lives. Their first step is escaping an island in the midst of a tsunami, and it only gets more dangerous from there.
Can they find their way home as civilization crumbles around them? And if they do, what horrors will they find?
It's a bullet-train of a thriller riding on the edge of the rails to the last page.

Everyday people trying to survive
What would you do if you awoke to a tsunami and a world without power? It’s scary to contemplate. That’s what happened to Jim and his family as they were on vacation, several states away from home. Pilgrimage by Tom Abrahams details their escape from the tsunami, their troubles navigating the unsafe streets while trying to get home, and what they found when they reached the supposed-safe-haven. Jim is a man who refuses to give up and will do anything to protect his family. I love that the characters are normal, everyday people who must face challenges head-on and use the will to survive to overcome. This action-packed story kept my attention from the first page. Kevin Pierce projects the emotions of the characters and has an innate ability to place us into the story with his voice. He’s an excellent narrator.

Typical apocalypse story
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
My best summary for this book is, walking dead without the zombies. There's a major disaster and a family wants to go home.
This book can be divided into 3 distinct sections. They feel more like 3 separate books in a series rather than a cohesive story. The sections begin quite abruptly and almost never references previous sections. It was quite jarring. I actually had to check the chapter list once thinking the app skipped me ahead in error.
I enjoyed the family dynamic most. Not everyone is an instant survivor and just because the world might be ending, doesn't mean we should lose our sense of right and wrong. The wife being scared and reserved makes more sense. The fact that the husband adapted so quickly unnerves me. The daughter is absolutely useless, even as a plot device. If the author wanted to showcase a child's reaction to the apocalypse, the son is enough. Maybe because I don't like kids, now I really don't like kids.
The performance was good and consistent with the sample provided.
