The Chemin, also known as the Camino de Santiago, is a centuries-old pilgrim route that ends in Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain. Every year, thousands of walkers some devout, many not follow the route that winds through quaint small villages and along busy highways alike, a journey unlike any other. Zoe, an artist from California whos still reeling from her husbands sudden death, has impulsively decided to walk the Camino, hoping to find solace and direction. Martin, an engineer from England, is road-testing a cart of his own design&and recovering from a messy divorce. They begin in the same French town, each uncertain of what the future holds. Zoe has anticipated the physical difficulties of her trek, but she is less prepared for other challenges, as strangers and circumstances force her to confront not just recent loss, but long-held beliefs. For Martin, the pilgrimage is a test of his skills and endurance but also, as he and Zoe grow closer, of his willingness to trust othersand himselfagain

I enjoyed this read. Being a fan of Simsion’s earlier book , “The Rosie Project”, I knew this would be special.
A story of a grieving widow and a divorced dad weaved together all while educating on the popular European trek ‘the Camino’ (or Chemin).

I always admire (being sarcastic here) someone’s ability to talk a lot and say nothing. 50 pages later I found myself knowing 4 names and the fact that two people were traveling. That’s it. The first 50 pages are all over the place - a broken trolley, a French village, some families, some people, some sellers...what a disaster, really.
