    SMITH Jenna - A Way.
    par Bernard Delhomme

    But why ? Why would a young urbanite leave the comforts of home and walk 65 days through rain and hail and scorching sun ? So begins A Way, the recounting of a young woman’s pilgrimage along the Camino di Santiago from France through Spain, with nothing more than the bag on her back and her husband by her side. It tells of the people met (the quirky ones, the lost ones, the kind and unforgettable ones), the physical discomforts endured (and oh, how many there were) and of the road travelled (all 1065 miles of it). It reveals how a sacred pilgrimage can bring about the most unsacred of experiences. It is a memoir, intertwined with reflections from the walking and lessons learned on the road about time, about the body, and about community. But most of all, it’s a story. The story of a long walk.
