Joan Fallon

Author Joan Fallonabout this book: Beth is a woman who takes life on the chin but when she discovers that the cancer has returned she cannot face any more treatment. She decides to keep the news from her husband and her son and get away from it all. All she wants is to be on her own. She embarks on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela not knowing what she will find on the way nor how long it will take her.

On her journey she meets other pilgrims, a soldier, a retired policeman, a marketing executive and others, each with their own story to tell and each looking for something. After five hundred miles and five weeks of walking across northern Spain she arrives in Santiago de Compostela, a changed woman.

By the time she returns home she is no longer afraid and is able to face whatever life has in store for her once more.

SANTIAGO TALES is a novel loosely based on Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales'.

• 'Joan Fallon's new book, Santiago Tales, lets you walk 790 kilometres in the shoes of a modern-day pilgrim on the ancient Way of St. James across northern Spain. Her book illuminates the entire experience, from bedbugs and blisters to the camaraderie of the hostels and long days of solitude and contemplation. A must read for anyone considering walking the Camino, or for armchair travellers who want to immerse themselves in the 1000-year-old traditions of this spiritual journey.' — Karen McCann, author of 'Dancing in the Fountain'
