In this audiobook, Timothy Egan brings listeners along as he makes a thousand-mile walking pilgrimage to find the roots of his Catholic faith. In a well-defined and pleasant voice, he progresses through France, Italy, and Switzerland, and ends with seeking an audience with Pope Francis in Rome. He chats with his listeners about Joan of Arc, Martin Luther, and even Henry VIII, telling their stories, half legend, half fact, with fascination and wonder in his voice, faltering only when he talks about his own faith and the state of the Catholic Church today. He is a man who wants to believe, and each step he takes on bloodied feet brings him to a greater understanding of himself while giving listeners a journey to remember. E.E.S.
