Marie Maccagno is passionate about walking, the great outdoors, and chocolate. In the spring of 2009, she made a commitment to walk 800 kilometers through Spain in the hopes she could eat all the chocolate she could find.
What she didn’t expect to find was herself.
A walk that long gives a person a lot of time to think. Marie’s mind dished out big lessons around forgiving her mother, entertaining the idea of possibly leaving her husband, and honoring herself as a parent. One step at a time is how Marie completed the Camino de Santiago and learned to love herself after all the years of inner self-hate.
"I can choose my own path: that’s what Marie’s journey has taught me. Her words will transport you to a place where you know you can choose too -- and that’s a rare gift. When you read her book, you will be so glad you walked this path with her!" Michele Gunderson, Ph.D., Best-selling author and Breakthrough Story Expert
"Marie’s book took me on a journey of her very personal quest - and I recognized myself in her story: difficult family relationships, questions about marriage, and not liking who I am. I am very grateful she did all the walking for me, and chose to share her wisdom in this powerful creative memoir!" Yvonne Basten, Executive Managing Director Calgary, eWomenNetwork Inc
