“Beautifully written.  Moving, elegant, funny, and deeply human.”

           Devotion and Slow Motion


To strengthen their marriage and prepare them for parenthood, David and Lisa walk the Camino de Santiago, a 400-mile pilgrimage across the north of Spain.  But, as they discover, the pilgrimage doesn’t end in Santiago; it continues as they return home and face more difficult challenges: the stillbirth of their first son and Lisa’s harrowing second pregnancy. 


Walking Distance is a moving and disarmingly funny book, a good story with a happy ending—the safe arrival of David and Lisa’s second son, Benjamin.  David and Lisa get more than they bargained for, but they also get exactly what they wanted: a child, a solid marriage, and a richer life.
