Beneath Wandering Stars by Ashlee Cowles August 1

This is the deeply moving story of  Gabriela who honors a promise she made to her brother that she would  walk the Camino de Santiago through Spain, making a pilgrimage in his name.  As he lays in a coma in a military hospital she sets off on her quest, but her traveling companion is her brothers best friend who she despises on her best days and with her family and her mood off kilter the pairing could end before it  and the pilgrimage even start, yet as they travel from place to place and meet a variety of other people Gabi learns many things about herself and her world and realizes that may-be her brother’s taste in friends is not so bad after all.  A moving and emotional story about family and love and the changes and loss that life throws at all of us.
