The Long Walk Home: Confessions on the Camino
Questioning her call to ordained ministry, church patriarchy, and even her understanding of the nature of God, a parish pastor set out with conviction and high expectations to walk this five-hundred-mile pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago to find her truth. But somewhere during epic storms, a lack of places to sleep, and getting lost, the pilgrimage took from her what the journey was meant to take: pride, security, and control. The walk of thirty-four days became one of daily confessions as she slowly began to realize her prejudices, her judgments, and her fears. The book is a combination of a daily travelogue, Camino history, and a memoir of Wakeland's lifelong search for the nature of what is Holy.
