It has been nearly three decades since Shirley MacLaine began to chronicle her brave personal quest for spiritual understanding. In her latest bestseller she delivers her most breathtaking account yet.
This is the story of a journey - a riveting odyssey that began with anonymous letters imploring Shirley to make a difficult pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. People from St Francis of Assisi and Charlemagne to Ferdinand and Isabella to Dante and Chaucer have taken the journey, which comprises a nearly 500-mile trek across highways and fields, mountains and valleys, cities and towns. Now it would be Shirley's turn.
For Shirley, the Camino was an intense spiritual and physical challenge. A woman in her sixth decade completing such a grueling trip on foot in thirty days at a rate of twenty miles per day was nothing short of remarkable. But even more astounding was the route she took spiritually. Through astonishing visions and revelations, Shirley saw the meaning of the cosmos, including secrets of ancient civilisations, insights into human genesis, the essence of gender and sexuality, and the true path to higher love.
With her trademark grace, Shirley MacLaine gently leads us on a sacred adventure toward an inexpressibly transcendent climax. This book promises readers the journey of a thousand lifetimes.
