Publisher's Summary

Zoe, a sometime artist from California, has recently lost her husband. Martin, an engineer from Yorkshire, is alone after a messy divorce. Both have ended up in Cluny, central France, on a separate journey to walk the Camino: 2,000 kilometres to Santiago, in northwestern Spain.

The Camino changes you, it's said. It's a chance to find a new version of yourself. But can these two very different people find each other?

Fun, thoughtful, and motivating

The story grew on me. Initially I “didn’t like “ Zoe, and was unsure if I would continue listening. However as it progressed I be came engrossed and looked forward to hearing some more. I now believe that this was in someway almost a parallel of where the characters were personally, their unease with themselves and their lives, relationships. As they grew my connection to them grew, and like them I undertook some introspection. So lots of layers to enjoy. I didn’t choose the book on its subject , the Carmine, but now am looking forward to finding more about it, and other trails.

very enjoyable

I really enjoyed this story, maybe to the point of feeling inspired by it. A really easy stress free "nice" story. Good ending.

Easy listening and entertaining

a good story about life and it's challenges. if you enjoy books about life and /or walking with nature you will enjoy this. The two central characters gave the book a good structure to bounce off different ways of thinking and seeing life.

Even better than reading the book

I first read the book a few years ago and enjoyed it immensely but I think listening to this audio book is even better!

The two narrators were perfect for how I imagined Zoe and Martin to be 😀👍😎
