RESTLESS HEARTS: Walking the Camino de Santiago by Roy Uprichard brings new insights into the Camino de Santiago. As a historian, the author explains the history behind various monuments especially those dealing with revolutions and strife within Spain. As an Irish person who was personally affected by “The Troubles” in Belfast, Mr. Uprichard brings personal awareness and sensitivity to strife within a country when discussing the revolution and those killed during the Franco risings. I found his point of view honest and refreshing.
Having walked the Camino, I enjoyed the author’s descriptions and annotations. I particularly enjoyed his descriptions of flowers and birds, since I know so little of either.
As the saying goes, each person walks his own Camino and I enjoyed seeing it through his eyes. Although not a Catholic, Mr. Uprichard reawakens his faith while walking the Camino and tells about it in a heartfelt way.e of either.
