Rosemary Wallace has become invisible even to herself. She must do something, but what?
A pamphlet describing the ancient pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela shuffles its way to the top of a pile of old papers and her snap decision is made. She will walk 500 miles across Northern Spain on her own with a rucksack on her back as pilgrims have done for over a thousand years.
The journey takes six weeks. The experience is life-enhancing. The characters she meets along the way, including Murielle the French artist whose painting of an angel induces helpless bursts of laughter in all who see it; Dominic, the amorous Flying Dutchman; Stefan an angry young filmmaker, with stories of their own worth sharing, help her to see the world anew.
