This was a wonderful book! I learned a lot about the norms of the, i want to say, 13th century. I think the theme was (I was only 12 when I had read it) embrace responsibility and courage. It was also a story on life's crossroads experienced through a physical journey. I had no idea, until I watched the movie "The Way", that this was and still is THE pilgrimage for Catholics. I suddenly remembered this book when a peer showed me his passport for the pilgrimage. I was like, "Hey, that spiritual hike sounds an awful like this book I read when I was in middle school". Turns out it was the same pilgrimage. Enough of exposing my ignorance of Catholicism! It was an excellent book and meant for anyone to read who needs a little inspiration for facing what you cannot run away from.
