Maggie Ramsayabout this book: It is a fantastic feeling to have your readers tell you they couldn't put your book down. And that they laughed out loud. It is an addictive feeling. Almost as addictive as the reason for my book—a two month walk from France to Rome along a medieval pilgrimage route. What started out as a way to keep in touch with family and friends at home has got completely out of hand and now has a life of its own on Amazon. Who would have thought! Lovely France. Spectacular Switzerland. And, best of all, walking the length of Tuscany, hopping off the route to drop in on Venice and Florence, staying in tiny villages, trekking through forests and across mountains, staying right off the beaten track, sees Italy at its absolute best. The people are fantastic, the art, the scenery (sigh) and, of course, the food. Bella Italia. One step at a time.
The Spanish Camino is well-trodden now, but the Italian hardly known at all so it is very different. This book will interest readers who might like to do the journey one day. Or, much more likely, who would like to experience it comfortably warm and dry at home.
This is what one reviewer said:
• "Wow, what an adventure! I couldn't put the book down until I had reached the end. Maggie has the ability to make you feel you are walking along with her, experiencing all the hardships and wonders along the way. This together with her humour throughout makes the book a great read."
