Rebekah Scott is a seeker. Of stories, truths and beliefs. Her home in a tiny adobe pueblo at the heart of the Camino Francés is both a haven for weary pilgrims and incubator of some great Camino support initiatives. The cavalcade of travellers and locals that weaves through the daily lives of Rebekah and husband Patrick provides rich pickings for a writer with such a vivid way with words.
I read this book at one sitting. It takes you right to the core of the enigma that is pilgrim hospitality – the acceptance, with love, of one and all who come to the door. It’s a lesson I often still stumble over as a hospitalera. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Camino, but particularly in donativo hospitality.
