Format: Paperback
The author's daughter was diagnosed with Aids and given only a short time to live. A turbulent, but loving, relationship led him to make the pilgrimage from Le Puy in France to Santiago de Compostela (The Feild of the Star) in NW Spain. During the journey he thinks and writes about his relationship with Francesca, as well as with his travelling companions. The book is a moving and fascinating tribute to an immensely gifted young woman and an introduction to the tribulations of the 1000 miles pilgrimage. This reader felt the journey thoroughly worthwhile and hopes to follow it herself.

Format: Paperback
The moving story of Luard's journey following the 1000 year old pilgrimage of St. John of the Field of Stars, left me close to tears. Its a book that you know must end, at the end of the journey, at the death of the author's daughter, but that you wish never would. Luard's commentry on the trail are interspersed with memories of his daughters childhood spent in Spain and letters to her telling her all the things he never did while she was alive. Its a book only a father could write of a journey both physical and spiritual.

I first read this book a few years ago but gave it to a charity shop when I was moving flats. Sometimes, I was sorry to have given this book away so I was very pleased to be able to buy a copy back.
