's review

it was amazing

First, I want to thank Heather Gauthier, BScN, RN, MBA for providing me with this book so I may provide this review.

Heather Gauthier the author The Pilgrim’s Stone One Woman’s Unpredictable and Authentic Journey is truly an inspirational read. It will make you look at your life differently and be thankful for what you have. She is a first time novelist who’s writing seems like she has been writing forever-it is that good. I am so glad this nurse decided to write her own private personal story and journey and share it with the world. It needs to be told.

My heart went out to Heather when I read all about the struggles she went through with her breast cancer. She was very descriptive when she discussed her disease-down to the medication she took. Not to mention what a toll this took on her emotionally and physically.

This book is not solely based on her cancer though. It is about what she did to embrace life after to thank god for her living life! It is journey her healing emotionally, spiritually, mentally she was about to take walking 780 km around the world for 6 weeks, no cell phones, no maps, no internet. No way for anyone to get a hold of her. She traveled all over the world meeting fascinating people. Some days she walks 10 hour days. All written in a journal/diary format with titles, dates, times and pictures. Descriptions of events and what she saw and did for each day as well. She is very talented with describing things in detail.

One poem she has in the book that I really like The Journey by Mary Oliver. It represents the journey she has been on and is going on.

One part of the book touched deeply and I teared up when Heather felt God’s embrace in her heart. This journey now became more special to her it became more than she ever thought it would become. Never did she think it would be a religious experience but it did.
