Book Review:

Walking Home A Pilgrimage from Humbled to Healed

By Sonia Choquette

Join Sonia Choquette on her walk of the Camino de Santiago. This historic, ancient trail has been a pilgrimage for the devout, a hike of healing and a challenge for the adventurous athlete. To Sonia it was a coming home to the self she lost.

The reader will learn of the loss and subsequent grief that Sonia endures over a short time period. Death, divorce and a crisis of self lead her to embark on this journey.

Day after day, you follow along as she journeys not only on the trail, but deep within her soul. The reader meets other pilgrims as Sonia describes them in such detail, they become alive on the page.

The raw emotion of her grief and her anger can be felt and the reader can certainly empathize with her struggles. While the blisters and sore feet will remain with her, the reader vicariously walks along side her experiencing the rich detail of the surroundings of the Camino de Santiago.

To many, it will be an introduction to this piece of history, to others it will be an introduction to a mixed spirituality of the Catholic faith and New Age teachings. By the end, it was an inspirational read, thought provoking and heart felt.

Reading her adventure led me to want to make one of my own.
