I read this book because I've had an interest in the Camino for some time - not enough to do it myself, but....
I did go to Santiago de Compostela a few years ago and visited the Cathedral and the town, but I did it the easy way on a day trip from a cruise.
I've known of MacLaine's interest in things spiritual and esoteric for some time and have read some of her previous books. This one doesn't disappoint, although she does get "way out there" in parts of it. She deviates from the story of walking the Camino in recounting the events of a past life in Lemuria. I reamain a skeptic on this aspect of the narrative, but she writes and speaks about it with conviction. Who knows - maybe she's right. I especially enjoyed hearing this book in her voice.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At one point, I had to force myself to go forward when Shirley gave warning that what she was going to say next might be strange to most people. But, when I listened closely, I had a basic understanding of her thought process and how "it could happen". She talks openly and intelligently on what she believes happened to her and you can see how the dynamics of her thinking relates somewhat to the biblical learnings some of us grew up with and might explain some of lifes mysteries. These mysteries are avoided by some, questioned by others and researched by a few. I give Shirley the thumbs up for being inquisitive enough, open enough, and forthright enough to go forward and seek her truth. Once again, we each have different truths. Her account of the Camino was great and an enjoyable read. I have thought about it for several days and that is an indication of a book that stays in your mind because it gave you food for thought. If you are interested in the Camino de Santiago and seeking a spiritual journey - this book would be a good one to get on audible. Once again, I found it enjoyable.
