    One thought on “Walking Home: Finding Forgiveness and Freedom on the Way”

    1. I cannot believe how disappointed I am by this book I had such high hopes an intuitive spiritual healer goes on a hike across Spain to work out her emotional baggage and come to terms with several major and majorly failing relationships in her life Oh man, this is my jam I thought I was going to eat this book up.But, wow Choquette is one of the least insightful people I have ever encountered especially for someone who is so accomplished at and well known for.g insightful It never occurred to me [...]

    2. This is what I loved about the book, and what some didn t, the authenticity Some reviewers called it whining, narcissism, et al But I found Sonia Choquette introspective and analyzing She s on the journey of Camino de Santiago by herself, for this reason This is her journey and her reflection on troubled relationships including her marriage and her father I found her relatable and brave And most of all, encouraging It s easy to share our good sides with others To share our vulnerable, true anxio [...]

    3. I really enjoyed her journey through the Camino de Santiago, something I would love to do someday We are all in a pilgrimage of sorts trying to cope the best we can and live up to our expectations and to those others have of us Sometimes it is wise to take a step back, stop, spend sometime with yourself and decide what you really want This book inspired me to take that time and to learn how to take better care of myself.

    4. The Quick Version of Walking Home by Sonia Choquette I woke up I ate a PowerBar I said a prayer to the Universe God I ate a PowerBar I hiked I ate a PowerBar I thought some thoughts I ate a PowerBar I described some things I ate a PowerBar I met some people I ate a PowerBar I ate some actual food.I ate a PowerBar I drank some wine I wanted to eat a PowerBar but I was so exhausted that I fell asleep Repeat formula for each chapter ad nauseum until final the chapters where the author is eventually [...]

    5. If this book doesn t inspire you to do a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago, then nothing will A great travelogue that weaves in spiritual inspiration and self reflection.

    6. I am a big fan of Sonia, and I ve been interested in walking the Camino, so when I found out about her new book, I ordered a copy right away This book has a different tone than her others We re used to seeing the all positive, peppy, spiritual teacher Sonia In this book, we see how she feels when dealing with major emotional situations in her personal life We read about her struggles to not over spiritualize her feelings and instead, to feel them strongly and allow them to flow through her We ge [...]

    7. I thought it read too much like a self help book Which I later realized was printed on the back cover Then I realized that s what her actual career pretty much was I wish I would have known this before the purchase There were too many reassuring typical self help questions she asked herself throughout the book which were completely directed toward the reader to answer about themselves She seemed to focus on spirituality and angels and prayers and how every single action and reaction was a sign f [...]

    8. I found this account of Sonia Choquette s Camino pilgrimage to be enjoyable and enlightening Her intuition told her to walk the Camino after the sudden death of her brother and father, and the break up of her long standing marriage.Sonia s narrative is down to earth and reading it is almost like taking the trip oneself, without of course the hassle and pain.We are given detailed descriptions of her breakfasts at the various albergues hostels sometimes these were extremely meagre, just a slice of [...]

    9. I d glanced at a couple of the reviews prior to reading this book particularly Ladybugs from December 2014 and have to admit I was a bit worried starting out Now finished, I am very pleasantly relieved to find myself in complete disagreement with some of the negative reviewers points.Although I could not personally relate to the author s extremely spiritual nature, I appreciated this side of her due to how insightful it enabled her to be along her journey Even if some might say she was excessive [...]

    10. The author s brother and father died within six weeks of each other and then she and her husband separated She felt she had come to a crisis point in her life and needed to do something to change things The subject of walking the Camino kept cropping up in her life and she finally decided to take the plunge and do it The Camino is a pilgrim route across part of France and Spain ending at Santiago De Compostela a total of over five hundred miles in under forty days because that was all the time s [...]

    11. For anyone who has considered walking to Santiago de Compostella across northern Spain, this book will provide key insights into the day to day rewards and struggles Whether you feel encouraged or less after reading Walking Home likely depends on your own situation and aspirations One thing is certain, however Spending time with nature, having hours of solitude to sort through one s thoughts and emotions is a great gift in this modern, highly connected world.In this case, the author is a spirit [...]

    12. I absolutely adored reading this book and go so much out of it to help me on my own journey Whilst the book is about the Camino it is about Sonia s personal experience whilst walking each day rather than a complete detailed guide book I thoroughly enjoyed Sonia s honesty about her life, her own demons and her path to self forgiveness In this book she describes her Camino angels Sonia, for me you have been my Camino angel Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

    13. Another Camino memoir, and dear Mother Father God or whatever it is that Choquette says, this was not the book for me and I was not the reader for this book.The premise is there Choquette had suffered significant losses, and she needed a change she picked the Camino de Santiago She had no hiking experience and no Spanish, but she was ready to throw some degree of caution to the wind and go anyway She had blisters and aches and tears, but she did it.But oof it s hard to get past the narration Loo [...]

    14. An interesting and enjoyable story about one woman s experience of walking the Camino de Santiago Details her challenges and triumphs was a fascinating read Made me want to take the journey for myself.

    15. It was an OK read, not than this I felt like I was reading a pilgrim journal, but it missed those real and genuine gold nuggets that I was expecting to find in this book I learned about the different type of shoes and how her feet were hurting than anything else.I watched and listened a couple of Sonia Choquette interviews about this book and that s why I decided to buy it Everything was said and done in the interview, I did not learn anything new by reading the book What was not said in the [...]

    16. If you are thinking of walking the Camino, this book will give you some helpful information, but since it is a story of one woman s pilgrimage, no doubt some of your questions will go unanswered I do appreciate stories about someone taking a journey in order to gain enlightenment, but at times Choquette s recounting seems a bit self indulgent Maybe that is the point, but I just don t think I would have an internal crisis or personal eureka moment EVERY day of a walk like this It all seemed a bi [...]

    17. I can t resist a book about a pilgrimage and this certainly was one After deaths in her family, a disintegrating marriage and betrayals by colleagues, Choquette undertakes the ancient pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile trek over the Pyrenees from France to Santiago de Compostela on the western coast of Spain See The 2010 movie The Way, written by Emilio Estevez and starring his father Martin Sheen Walking in the steps of those millions who had taken the pilgrimage for over 1000 years [...]

    18. I loved every step of the way I didn t want to put the book down but I had to at times and when I came back it seemed to have a lesson for me Everything happens for a reason right Reading this book opened my eyes heart to so many things that I didn t realize I needed them to be opened to Camino de Santiago pilgrimage is now on my bucket list A gem for everyone just waiting to be explored.

    19. I have read probably 20 books on the Camino de Santiago, and walked a portion of it myself, so the details on the Camino itself were not new to me The story of her own healing were interesting in a voyeuristic sort of a way for a while, but got old by the end If you are into spiritual healing you might enjoy this, but as a tale of the Camino, there are better choices.

    20. A self indulgent and repetitive narration of a pilgrim on the Camino to Santiago de Compostela The writing is unremarkable, and each chapter is merely a rehash of the previous chapter s description of her cafe con leche, her ailments and anger at the people in her life, and her flashbacks to a previous life As the Spaniards say, Aburrido

    21. Interesting because I learned all about the Camino pilgrimage I had no idea so many folks walk this every year I was pretty turned off by her constant mumbo jumbo of spirit guides, past lives, angel guides etc It was non stop I should have just googled the pilgrimage rather than slough my way thru this way too long book

    22. Wow Her path really resonated with me I love her direct contact with spirit I loved your healing journey Puts me in a state of contemplation Thank you Sonia, your book was really a blessing for me and many blessings to you

    23. Amazing story and one which resonated with me deeply Sonia s description of her healing on the Camino, seemed to match my life s experience so it was deeply moving and so honest I felt I was there with her all the way

    24. Unless you re thinking about walking the Compostela pilgrimage, don t bother with this one Or even if you re thinking of going, you could still skip this one and be just fine

    25. I enjoyed this book however there were parts that seemed very repetitive and I found myself skipping over.

    26. There are better writers out there e.g Cheryl Strayed and her book Wild , however I appreciate Sonia Choquette s honesty as she tried to deal with the issues that have been keeping her trapped and not moving forward in life I could relate to the issues that she had being too independent and not being able to ask for help, feeling let down by other people, being too generous, giving too much The book is divided into two sections one section sets out her personal backstory and her reasons for unde [...]

    27. This book has a good premise to it I loved Wild and thought this book would be much the same It was to some extent, but oh so different At the end of the day, I hated this book Sonia s a good writer and a good story teller The problem for me was every day was the same day I felt like I was watching Ground Hogs day By page 200 I was done I didn t even finish it I read the last 10 pages because I was assuming there was some inspiration or important message after all the walking, but I just didn t [...]

    28. I completely enjoyed following Sonia s journey along the Camino de Santiago Insightful, authentic, brave, relatable and inspiring I highly recommend this book to my fellow life pilgrims Buen Camino

    29. I loved most parts Some were redundant and it felt I was rereading the same chapter over and over, but maybe that was the point She was living this Groundhog day of an experience and it wasn t until she opened herself up to love that she was able to move foward.
