What to expect
The Path is the journey of a lifetime to self-discovery. This is the story of a group of international travelers who walk the Camino de Santiago, the ancient five-hundred-mile pilgrimage from the Pyrenees mountains to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, northern Spain. Here are located the remains of James, the apostle of Jesus. The group includes people of all ages, all professions, and all religious affiliations or none at all. They include a sex-obsessed former captain in the British Army, a beautiful Danish businesswoman, a manic Austrian architect, a Welsh painter, a driven American priest, and a comic mother-daughter duo from Canada.
The thirty-five-day walk is tough and demanding. They relate intellectually, spiritually, and sexually as they search for their own deep and personal truths, which are not always what they expect—or want—to find. The climax is a terrible and shocking death that changes their view of themselves forever as they arrive in the holy city.
