In this poignant and hysterical memoir, The Pilgrim's Stone evokes a raw tumult of emotions through one woman's unpredictable and authentic journey to self. At 34, Heather Gauthier lost everything but her sense of humor. Stripped of her home, job, hair and divorcing during chemotherapy; she meets a pilgrim who pulls her out of darkness with the gift of a stone. For years, the stone continues to reappear until she heeds its call and vows to walk the 800 km trail of the Compostela de Santiago, in search of balance for her body mind and soul. Without a map or a compass to guide her, she endures countless misadventures including dinner with her pseudo ex-husband, haunting dreams, and a plane collision with a flock of Canadian Geese. Despite each disaster that occurs, valuable lessons about life are inadvertently learned; while deep spiritual experiences motivate her to continue walking. Step by step, she begins to heal her past with a gritty sense of humor, moving steadily towards Santiago with only the humble purpose of gratitude for the divine forces that have spared her life.
