The book I’m featuring this week is:
I have spent twenty years carefully stitching my family’s life together, so when it suddenly starts to unravel I find myself in a tangled knot of anxiety.
The Promised Land released earlier this month and I can’t wait to read my copy. It looks like it’s going to be an incredible read. Have you read it yet?
About the Book:
With her oldest son taking a gap year in Europe, her aging father losing his sight and his memory, and her husband of twenty years announcing that he’s leaving her, Abbie Bartholomew Jowett is surrounded by overwhelming loss.
Desperate to mend her marriage and herself, she follows her son, Bobby, to walk the famed Camino pilgrimage. During their journey they encounter Rasa, an Iranian woman working in secret helping other refugees, and Caroline, a journalist who is studying pilgrims on the Camino while searching for answers from her broken past.
Each individual has their own reasons for the pilgrimage, but together they learn that the Camino strips you bare and calls you into deep soul-searching that can threaten all your best laid plans.
Now it’s your turn!
