After reading this book I want to walk the 500 mile Camino de Santiago aka the Camino Way myself They say there are three parts to the Way; during the first part of the walk you find your body along the second laborious trudge you find your mind and during that final homeward stretch you find your soul It sounds extremely appealing sitting here on my couch reading about it from a distance but I can tell you if I ever do get the chance to walk the Way I will be very lucky to find my way to the 50th mile marker much less the 500th within 30 days lolAnyway enough about me this is a very compelling story that explores the figurative and literal ghosts that two walkers encounter during their journey Needless to say the setting is pretty powerful and there are a lot of interesting historical facts bandied about I would describe the story itself as kind of a slow continuous burner in which the suspense builds and builds and builds until it reaches that final climatic showdown at the end of the book and at the end of the WayA definite must read I received this ARC from NetGalley and Dundurn in exchange for an honest review Thank you

Growing up as a Lutheran my religious education was very no frills No saints No transubstantiation No relics No pilgrimages to see said relics But CS Cinneide’s novel Petra’s Ghost gives me a glimpse into what motivates a person to undergo physical hardship to travel miles to visit a holy site This novel shows us a variety of those motivations a grieving husband who is looking for the perfect place to put his wife’s ashes a woman running away from her past a Dutchman who really wants to make it all the way this time and dilettantes who are not in the most pious mood and really just want to visit the wineries and clubs along the way Read the rest of my review at A Bookish Type I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for review consideration

E lonely trail carrying his wife Petra’s ashes along with the damning secret of how she really diedWhen he teams up to walk with sporty California girl Ginny she seems like the perfect antidote for his grieving heart But a nightmare figure begins to stal. Petra's Ghost is as you'd expect from the title a ghost story However the the true beating heart of this entertaining tale of pilgrimage is the theme of redemption and its many often incomplete forms Admittedly I went into this book not having ever heard of the Camino de Santiago an ancient Spanish pilgrimage route CS O'Cinneide draws here on her own experiences while walking the route in 2015 and I need to point out what a fantastic job she does bringing the route to life using real life locations and details that add realism to the story The main character an Irish ex pat named Daniel is a well drawn out figure of grief and guilt over the recent cancer death of his wife Petra Daniel has come to the Camino to spread Petra's ashes and to perhaps find something in the pilgrimage for himself Daniel soon meets Ginny a girl from California who immediately proclaims him as different and an older Dutchman who takes on the role of wise sage They're soon besieged by a mysterious entity that seems to follow them along the path The book from this point assumes the dual roles of horror and travelogue Daniel and Ginny visit many historical locations festivals and inns along the path interspersed with encounters and far off sightings of the entity Throughout the book I found myself comparing certain sections to MR James' classic 'Oh Whistle and I'll Come to You My Lad' I can give no higher praise as I consider that one of my favorite ghost storiesI'd imagine Petra's Ghost will rank fairly highly on my year end book list Grief and guilt can be as terrifying as actual apparitions but as one character succinctly puts it Not all ghosts are out to harm you but they all carry messages I was given a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review My thanks to Dundurn
