A Heartening and Page-Turning Read
I 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!
