About the book
‘When you are in a car, beautiful places are a moment; if you stop the car, they are a cluster of moments. When you walk, beautiful places are an eternity
carved into the soul.’
Award-winning Australian journalist, Stephanie Dale has taken two very long walks in the first was in 2005, when she walked El Camino; and the second was in 2007 when she took time from her marriage and joined her son Ben for a journey from Rome to Istanbul. It was during the latter walk that she not only traveled the Balkans and countryside of Italy, but also the inner landscapes of her mind and her marriage. Dale took what she saw and experienced and put it on paper. The result: My Pilgrim’s Heart .
Praise for My Pilgrim’s Heart
'The longing is the path. These words encapsulate the power, intensity and emotions of Stephanie Dale's My Pilgrim's Heart. Her struggle to release herself from a broken marriage comes step by step on a long walk from Rome to Israel. Along the way she realizes that she is in fact the true love of her life. If only all women could understand the same.
Laine Cunningham, Award-winning author of Message Stick.
‘My Pilgrims Heart is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. It's full of adventure, coupled with a piercingly honest view of relationships between men and women. Its eloquence, beauty and intelligence had me hooked from the first page. Stephanie’s ability to weave such descriptive text to describe events and locale humbled me as an artist.’
John Dahlsen, Internationally acclaimed artist
