    A walk of disrespect for her family.

    This book is Mrs. Edwards testament of blatant disrespect to her family. Though you may gain insights of her travels and the journey of the Camino; due to her own pure selfishness you will also read of her family’s pain that she added just to get sales. Mrs. Edwards was respectfully asked not to include details about her son or his daughter prior to the publishing of this book. Instead she stated it was her right to discuss in detail both his ongoing divorce and the pain of his and his brother’s grief of their father’s death. This would be understandable if he was on the journey with her or co-writing the book, but instead it was a selfish money grab that, along with her questionable actions during his divorce proceedings, has destroyed their relationship. You may read in this book that Mrs. Edwards had some profound or spiritual healing that may inspire you in your own Camino. I only hope that your healing is more lasting, as within a month after her Camino Mrs. Edwards drove a sharp dagger in her son and twisted it with the words “you and your divorce has undone all the healing from my Camino.”

    An Engaging and Thought-Provoking Read

    This book is one of the most engaging books I have read recently. The author bares her soul as she shares her incredible journey of 780 kms on foot from St. Jean Pied de Port, France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The fact that she was a self-confessed “average middle-aged woman” much like myself makes her accomplishment that much more amazing. Reading this book it is easy to envision what Roxey saw and felt. Her descriptions of the country through which she travelled, the other pilgrims she met along the way and the physical and mental trials she faced made me anxious to keep reading, to see what happened and how far she made it each day. She obviously paid a great deal of attention to recording the details of her journey, and as a result I felt at times that I was walking along with her. People make this journey for many reasons and in many different ways, which is what prompted the title of the book. Although Roxey admits to being uncertain as to why she felt she needed to do it, along the way she simply and graciously shares her own faith and by the final chapter she reflects on how she has grown and changed through her experiences. It is a remarkable story of a remarkable woman’s physical, social, emotional and spiritual journey. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in examining their own life’s journey.

    An inspiring tribute to family and the Camino

    This is a beautiful, insightful and engaging book that offers a really wonderful story of Edwards' journey both emotionally and physically while walking the Camino. Having read this book in its entirety, I have to say that I wholeheartedly disagree with the negative review that was previously given. I could not find a single passage in this book where Edwards spoke disrespectfully or distastefully about her son or his daughter. This book is nothing if not a testament to how much she loves, admires and cares for not only her son but her whole family. This story is about a spiritual journey that Edwards went through during what she considered to be a pivotal time in her life and it is a beautifully written and well-executed memoir (with a travel aspect) that I personally, thoroughly enjoyed. While offering information and insights about her journey along the Camino, Edwards also allows herself to be vulnerable, imperfect and honest which is what anyone with an appreciation for literature would hope for from a personal memoir. While I obviously can't speculate on matters inside the author's family life, I certainly did not ever get the impression while reading this book that she was anything less than a champion with great love and respect for her children. I loved this book and I will be recommending it to anyone and everyone that I know.
