To celebrate her 50th birthday and face the challenges of mid-life, Jane Christmas joins 14 women to hike the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Despite a psychic's warning of catfights, death, and a sexy, fair-haired man, Christmas soldiers on. After a week of squabbles, the group splinters and the real adventure begins. In vivid, witty style, she recounts her battles with loneliness, hallucinations of being joined by Steve Martin, as well as picturesque villages and even the fair-haired man. What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim is one trip neither the author nor the reader will forget.

I have read every book there is on walking the Camino and I must say this book is the very best by far! Most enjoyable read, funny, down to earth tells it like it is holding nothing back.

Having walked a small portion of the Camino this past March 2016 with a friend, I thoroughly enjoyed reliving the experience by reading this book. I found the author authentic in her thoughts and feelings and would recommend this book. I love that the author is a Canadian!

I have been thinking about walking part of the Camino and somehow got this book. I found the title compelling, the book itself most enjoyable to read. I'm planning on reading her other books. Bonus that she comes/came from a Canadian perspective.

Very entertaining read. Kept my interest level up. Would be interested in doing a pilgrimage, but know the refugios are not for me.

Love her writing!!

This book, as well as being funny in spots, was reflective also.

Would recommend it highly.
