Just finished this wonderful book. Thank you Rebekah! My husband and I stayed at The Stone Boat last summer and our time spent talking with Kim was a highlight. This made your book really come alive after having met her. Thank you for sharing your amazing journey! :)

I'm a bit late to the party here but I just bought and read the book this week and found it to be a wonderful insight into life in rural Spain. It also offers a different and valuable perspective about the camino. 'Rebekah doesn't mince words,' as someone wrote upthread, is a great description of the writing style! Congratulations on the publication and success of the book!

I have purchased and read Rebekah's book in August. It was interesting to get a glimpse into her life as an albergue owner in such a small village on the Camino Frances and I enjoyed all the unique stories she shared.
I have passed her book on to a forum member from my area whom I meet up with yearly for a hike.

I have the paperback version in my small cottage. I prefer to read it in complete silence by my fireplace there. @Rebekah Scott writes fantasticly well. I look very much forward to reading it by myself, in peace (alone). If you wonder where this is, it's Arctic Norway, the Land of the Northern Lights; Turn up sound...

Awesome video and peaceful music, Alex! Your cottage is adorable...can you get to it in the winter?
I live in northern Illinois and 16 years ago when we moved outside the city we were out on our deck one night viewing the stars and we saw the Northern Lights for about fifteen minutes. It was incredible and hard to believe in our area...we've never seen them since.

Thank you so much! We see Northern lights frequently here in the Arctic. I can tell you; although I have seen the Northern Lights all my life, they never cease to amaze me. My cottage is only 27 m2, and 80 years old, but works like a charm: Wood fireplace, Toilet gas incinerator (solar powered, maintenance free), gas fridge, gas stove. I chop my own wood from my own forest. All is perfect. A bit tough for winter, but doable. Only 20 mins. by car away.

Thanks for sharing about your cottage. It sounds like a great getaway spot and like a daydream many of us have had...a reality for you.

I have berries and wood in my forrests, and salmon/trout in my river. I can fire up the fireplace and read a good book without TV or any other noise...

It sounds like a little bit of heaven on earth for those of us who enjoy nature, foraging, and a dose of quiet contemplation here and there.

Thank you for sharing such a glorious location in which to read Rebekah’s book. It is pushing me to take it out from the shelves and read it again...

I bought the book some months ago and started reading it, but I put it away, because I want to go to my cottage and read it all in one go, with a glass or two of red. :) in total peace. When spring comes. The book is residing there in total solitude until I start next season. I am looking very much forward to that.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and staying over at @Rebekah Scott 's place 2 times. She really is running a gem on the Camino. Peaceful and welcoming.

I love imagining the little bit of me hanging out in that place that is so very far away.
We have the silence in common. It is exiquisitely quiet in Moratinos on a weeknight in December!

You will be the eye/spirit on the wall here, for sure. In my thoughts while reading.
