Tracking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela by Jean Goulden
Book cover Blisters and Blessings

Blisters and Blessings traces the most popular French route of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela from the Basque French town of St Jean, Pied de Port to the great Spanish cathedral at Compostela.  This is a book of discovery, the outward journey to the “end of the world” and the inward journey of the soul. Beautifully written, it captivates and inspires us to venture on.

In a sensitive tale shot with humor, sadness and even despair, Jean Goulden reflects on themes of identity, courage and compassion.  It’s a compelling, tender journey into the quivering heart of family relationships.
