Beschreibung

Years ago, an overachieving and harried young mother accidentally flushed her gold watch down the toilet. Time passed, but the image of the lost watch continued to haunt her, a symbol of an overcommitted life. Two decades later, propelled by a series of curious coincidences, she leaves behind her busy professional life, her cell phone, and her family to escape the tyranny of time and walk 500 miles across Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela.

Steps out of Time brings the mysterious and wonderful world of the Camino to life with its tales of serendipitous encounters, new friends made (and one tragically lost), stunning natural beauty, and unforgettable food. By the end of her journey, an exhausted and exhilarated Katharine Soper is keenly aware she has completed much more than a monthlong walk.

Über den Autor

Kate has been fascinated by the pilgrimage to Santiago since she first walked the Camino francès from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, to Santiago de Compostella, Spain, at age 57. Steps Out of Time: One Woman’s Journey on the Camino is based on the journal she kept during that life-changing journey.Since her first pilgrimage, Kate has returned to Europe six times to walk other pilgrimage trails to Santiago. Most recently, she walked the Portuguese Coastal Camino from Porto to Santiago in the fall of 2019 and the traditional Portuguese Camino from Lisbon to Santiago in the summer of 2017. She continues to deepen her understanding of pilgrimage by serving as a volunteer hospitalière at the Pilgrim Welcome Center in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (2009, 2010, and 2011) and at a Monastery in Conques, France, that has welcomed pilgrims to Santiago for centuries (2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018). Her plans to walk the Via de la Plata from Seville to Santiago in the spring of 2020 and to do additional volunteer work at pilgrim centers are on hold pending the safe re-opening of the Camino.There’s so much more to say about the Camino! For some of Kate’s current Camino musings, go to www.crazywisdomjournal.com and search for “Creature Comforts on the Camino, Part 1: Do Real Pilgrims Take Cold Showers,” "Creature Comforts on the Camino, Part 2: Are Smartphones, Email, and Apps Existential Threats," “Danger on the Camino: Trust in Allah and Tie Up the Camels,” and “Been There, Done That?”Kate is now retired from an administrative position at the University of Michigan. She has also worked as a French professor at Boise State University and the University of Alaska, an attorney practicing divorce law and insurance defense law, a divorce mediator, and a writer and editor at the Institute of Continuing Legal Education in Ann Arbor. Earlier in life, she supervised line-walkers on the Alaska pipeline, guided student tours to France and Spain, and taught English to mid-level executives in Bogotà, Colombia, and to air traffic controllers at the Bordeaux International Airport. Kate was an avid backpacker until health concerns precluded carrying more than ten pounds on her back: she has gotten this limitation down and is looking forward to future Caminos!She and her husband, Philip, live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They have two children and three granddaughters.Write Kate at stellairepress@gmail.com with your questions, comments, and thoughts. ¡Buen camino!

  • (5/5)
    Honest and informative, a great insight into a normal person’s extraordinary journey.
  • (3/5)
    I love the descriptions of the scenery, the colors. A story set about the Camino before it became the mob scene it is now. Well written, though I can’t relate to the author at all.
