AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sometimes the slow road can be the fastest way to sort things out.

'Relationship-challenged, with the résumé of a vagrant, Tom Trumble is at one of life's crossroads. So he takes up an offer to go on a seriously long walk - the ancient Christian pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the domain of the devout.

'Despite his good intentions, Tom's route takes him into every bar along the way while crossing paths with the loopy and the wise, the pious and the distinctly ungodly. He finds himself contending with song-happy evangelists, unlikely scholars and enlightened globetrotters, and randy backpackers out to bed every pilgrim they meet. Not to mention his own very restless demons, some of which lead him to confront troubles he thought he'd left at home.

'Unholy Pilgrims is an irreverent and engaging take on figuring out what the hell to do with your life.' (From the publisher's website.)
