Description


This tale of faith and triumph spans a period of six years. The author persuades her reluctant twin sister to accompany her on the Camino for a spiritual quest and the adventure of a lifetime. Beginning in the spring of 2011, they backpack in yearly segments for almost a thousand miles from Le Puy-en-Velay in France, crossing the Pyrenees, and eventually reaching Santiago de Compostela on the northwestern coast of Spain. Slogging through rain and mud, climbing in and out of medieval mountainous villages, sojourning in the midst of vineyards and fields of sunflowers and red poppies, they press on. Written with humor and humility, the author details their heroine's journey and pilgrimage as they come face to face with their greatest fears. The Way of Saint James beckons them to return again and again--it calls them still. 22 full-color oil paintings by the author as well as photos and a map illustrate the book. Come join them in their leap of faith--you will see.
