Murielle's Angel, a novel set along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the pilgrim's way in Northern Spain, tells the story of an ordinary housewife who does something quite extraordinary.
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.
