Wow, what an adventure!!
From Back Cover:
The Chemin, also known as the Camino de Santiago is a centuries old pilgrim route that ends in Santiago de Compostela in NW Spain.Every year thousands of walkers, some devout-many not, follow the route that winds through quaint small villages and along busy highways alike, a journey unlike any other.
Two different people-Zoe-an artist from California sets off to learn to cope with her husband's death so she goes to visit a friend in France, and learns of The Chemin. She signs on with a limited budget and embarks on the journey hoping to deal with her husbands death and what else she wants with her life. Along the way she meets Martin who had a clever design for his cart, hoping to sell to the highest bidder.
We meet other characters in here which add to the adventure, and they are all there for different reasons. Zoe and Martin were two people who were so easy to relate to.
I loved reading of this journey, described in great detail, you could picture it in your mind.
Very thought provoking. And this journey can be done for real, it is a real walk.
I couldn't tell you one thing I didn't like about this book!!
