Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review `...an authentic and diverting read that will make you want to put on your walking boots and book a one-way ticket to southern France.' * Press Association * `Charming and absorbing' * Daily Mail * `Charming, uplifting' * The People * `A beautifully crafted tale of love, self-acceptance and blisters.' * Sunday Express * `Simsion and Buist are Camino veterans who add detail and authority to their novel.' * Adelaide Advertiser * `Difficult to put down until the very end.' * Big Issue * `Fans of The Rosie Project might recognise shades of Don Tillman...Compelling reading...[A] cast of entertaining and eccentric characters...The book's momentum never flags...[An] entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable romance.' * Sydney Morning Herald * `A delightful tale of renewal and shedding unnecessary burdens...This is sure to be loved by fans of The Rosie Project and it's enough to put the Camino at the top of your travel wishlist.' * Herald Sun * `There's so much to love about this novel, which is smart and funny and full of the awkwardness and adrenaline of adventure and new romance.' * Whimn * `A novel of mature love and self-discovery set against the scenic backdrop of the pilgrims' walk.' * Age * `Simsion and Australian psychiatrist Buist have written an insightful study of loss, grief, and the possibility of romance after.' * Library Journal *
