C.S. O’Cinneide º Petra's Ghost book A man's pilgrimage becomes something from his darkest nightmares when secrets arise and ghosts haunt his pathA woman has vanished on the Camino de Santiago the ancient five hundred mile pilgrimage that crosses northern Spain Daniel an Irish expat walks th Petra’s Ghost is perhaps the biggest surprise of my reading so far this year While the description of the book with a man walking the Camino the “Way” in Spain encountering physical and spiritual and possible extra physicalspiritual challenges during the months long walk appealed to me it did not prepare me for how compelling this story actually is It is a tale of personal beliefs fears and failures the uest for personal truth and possible redemption in life As one man he meets tells Daniel ”Each of the three stages is challenging in its own way” “Well the first part of the Camino is for the body” the hippie says “You either get strong or end up in the hospital in the first part” “The second part is for the mind The same meseta landscape for days” “Nothing to feed the brain but an endless pancake of open ground A pilgrim’s thoughts turn inward You can start to lose your grip with the monotony in the second part” “What’s the last part for?” he asks “The soul” “Aye Santiago” Daniel says “The cathedral” “Not just the cathedral my friend Everything that leads up to the cathedral Everything that you were hoping to find there it all comes down to faith my friend Faith that there is something you are walking toward Something That will alter you as a person I’m saying you’ll either find or lose your soulon the last part” loc 2603Daniel has decided to pursue this walk after the death of his much loved wife Petra She died a difficult lingering death due to cancer and Daniel has not reconciled himself with that loss There are also uestions in his life he has been evading continuing to be caught in Petra’s death The others Daniel meets on this walk have their own purpose or reasons for being there Some talk of their purpose while others don’t There is much to contemplate within these covers whether one undertakes such a momentous journey on The Way or not One point of this really interesting novel seems to me to be that each of our lives comprises such a journeyI do highly recommend this book While some may not be inclined to read books with philosophical or religious content I must say this is not in any way a preachy book It’s a story of an event with some magical realism included where people do think often aloud about life and death history the art to be found in the churches along the CaminoA copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review
