I was immediately struck by the book design, even before getting into the text. Simple, uncluttered, but different - a good complement to the storyline.
There is a saying that everyone walks their own Camino. That is true, but Sue Kenney's My Camino brings out the common threads we all share: the past experiences that influence our walk; the separation of friends and family, the physical demands of this five hundred mile journey and finally; the changes it brings to our inner selves.
The book begins interestingly with a competitive rowing scene: eight women rowing across Lake Ontario: "the set cadence acts like a mantra to free the mind to focus on the body." This phrase made me instantly think of walking across the meseta. "in a moment of transformation the boat and crew's 1500 pounds propel forward with force and grace." The rowing results in a gold medal in the World Masters Rowing Championship in Montreal and provides mental resources to draw on for the challenge of the Camino.
Then comes Kenney's background: the despair of having a younger sister with terminal cancer, the typical downsizing job loss - being called to a meeting and handed a box to pack your office belongings, age over forty, teenaged daughters, divorce. The rowing allowed her to put her anger at cancer into the water.
The demands of job and family result in a lifetime of giving and little time for herself. Sue Kenney looks at the Camino as an opportunity to face her fears and love herself.
She started her trip in early November, so had a very different experience than those walking in the popular months of May through September. Many refugios were closed. Winter weather was setting in and pilgrim numbers had dwindled to the very few.

I had just recently come back (Sept/04)from my own journey on the Camino and a friend of mine said I should read Sue Kenney's book "My Camino". Since I could not get the Camino our of my head I knew I had to read this book and went right out to buy it. I loved every word of this book! Sue was able to bring me right back on the trail with her. I knew exactly where she was at all times and wished I was there too. She not only gave good descriptions of the trail, the scenery, the comradship but covered the spiritualty of the journey. The Camino does allow you to go deep into your soul and find out who you really are and where you should be heading to complete your journey in this life time.
I read many books before going on the Camino and some were too much like travel logs and some were less about the Camino and more about the authors trip through her past lives. Sue's book was excellent and gave a person a true vision of what it is like to travel the Camino physically and what it is like to see into your soul. A remarkable book!

I read this book and was very taken by it. I loved the story and how it made me feel. I thought the writing was wonderful. I recently went to our local library to find more on this topic and to my disappointment I didn't find one half as good. So, I ordered Sue Kenney's 2nd book. I can't wait to receive it and start a new journey with Sue. Thank you Sue for sharing such a wonderful experience.

This book was disappointing and poorly written. I have read a number of "Camino" books in anticipation of walking it and this was one of the more poorly written. As one of the other reviewers said, the author's new age sentimentalities were implausible and off-putting. There are many other Camino books out there - read one of them!
