When Sheila Kogan lost her boyfriend, job and dog--what she thought were the mainstays of her life, she experienced the tough lesson of not being in control. But fate and a friend encouraged her to face her aloneness and walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain-by herself. At first, she scoffed at the absurdity of a non-hiking, anti-backpacking, limited-Spanish-speaking, saint-resisting, Jewish-Catholic skeptic walking The Way of Saint James. But there was a tug to follow this thousand-year-old trail. Could she do it?
In twenty connected stories, Sheila Kogan's Found Along The Way takes us on her five-hundred-mile pilgrimage across Spain on the Camino de Santiago. Through funny, homey, at times sacred experiences, we travel on a journey between doubt and trust, physical exhaustion and spiritual rebirth.
