“Evocative, cinematic, and romantic, ALONG THE WAY will transport you, taking you on the journey of a lifetime that will test the bonds of three childhood friends.” ~ Megan Frazer, Author of SECRETS OF TRUTH AND BEAUTY, and VERY, IN PIECES
Three friends, 33 days, and 500 miles walking the Camino de Santiago add up to one journey they’ll never forget Piper Rose, Dani Shapiro, and Alexandra ‘Tessa’ Louise De Mille Morrow share a history that goes back to their preschool years in Chicago when their families were still intact. Now Piper lives in Evanston with her divorced dad, her estranged, unstable mother popping in and out of her life at random moments. Meanwhile, Dani’s been living in Santa Fe with a psychologist mom pregnant with her fiancé’s IVF babies. The blueblood Tessa resides on a prominent street in Boston and dreams of a romantic and well-heeled love story like that of her great-grandmother who went to France during World War II. Now that it’s the summer before college, these radically different friends decide to celebrate their history and their future by walking the legendary pilgrimage along the Way of St. James, from the French Pyrenees to the Spanish city of Santiago. Along the way, each young woman must learn to believe in herself as well as in her friends, as their collective journey unfolds into the experience of a lifetime.
