Product description


A Journey of Personal Growth

By Barbara M. Webb on 25 Feb. 2017

Part of being on a pilgrimage is the cumulative effect of events that take place during while the discipline of walking is maintained. The Camino de Santiago is no different. Everyone has a reason for walking it and everyone learns something from it.

For Beth, the protagonist of this novel, the lesson was "life was for living". There was no miracle but through meeting other people and their problems, she found the strength to face the future and accept what it would bring.

I enjoyed the descriptions of the landscape along the way, as well as the heartfelt sharing between the different personalities on the pilgrimage. The book emphasises the humanity that underlies all of humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Delightful inspiring read, a page turner

By Elaine Rowland on 21 May 2013

I read this delightful book - a series of tales of Pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago, just after visiting Santiago de Compostela and was really moved by the trials and tribulations of the characters, whose stories unfold as the book and the Camino draw ever closer to the great Cathedral and burial place of St James. The little miracles that occur during the journey and at it's end are heart warming. (Don't want to give the plot away!) As other reviewers have said it is reminiscent of Chaucer's Pilgrim's Tales and as such is rather inspiring. I only wish I had the guts to undertake the Camino! Well done Joan, write some more like this please!

A heartening & page-turning read

By Ann Victoria Roberts on 17 Mar. 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed Joan Fallon's latest novel. The characters were well-drawn and believable, they drew the reader in with a variety of personal stories revealed over the length of the pilgrimage. The essence of the Camino was there - not just in the places and the difficult terrain, but in the way it changes people. It was very well conveyed - the length of the journey, the act of retracing other pilgrim's footsteps, the generosity and bonding experienced between strangers along the way. It made me want to go back to northern Spain and walk the Camino myself

About the Author

The Scottish novelist Joan Fallon, currently lives and works in the south of Spain. She writes both contemporary and historical fiction, but has also written a work of non-fiction which has proved the inspiration for at least two of her subsequent novels. Two aspects of Joan's life particularly influence her writing. The first is being a woman who grew up during the sixties and seventies, at a time when it was harder for a woman to gain recognition in a man's world. Consequently almost all her books have a strong female protagonist. The second influence is the fact that she has lived in Spain for the last twenty years. Spanish history and culture fascinate her and have provided some of the most exotic settings in her historical novels.
