Once Upon A Camino is a story about love, courage, friendship, regret, fate and destiny and was beautifully told

Carpe Librum

Tom, a 28-year-old investment banker, lives a successful life in London with his girlfriend, Ana. Intending to propose, he flies to Spain, seeking her family’s blessing. But his plan runs aground when Ana’s grandfather, Tito, insists the union cannot proceed until Tom walks the Camino de Santiago, an 800-kilometre pilgrimage across Spain.

‘A man would walk across a country without hesitation for the love of his life, no?’

Upon commencing the Camino, Tom’s plans further unravel – his backpack mysteriously disappears, and his phone loses its signal. And when all the other hikers seemingly vanish, Tom makes a discovery that changes everything. Suddenly pursued by the authorities, Tom’s only path home to Ana is alongside a motley band of pilgrims bound for Santiago – among them a reclusive fisherman named Fernando, who carries his own dark secret.

Once Upon a Camino is a novel about time. It focuses on past regrets and untrodden paths. It’s a story of friendship and connection, of following your heart, despite your better judgement. It’s written for those who’ve walked the path to Santiago and others who simply enjoy life’s unpredictable journey and the strangers we meet along the way.

I knew very little about the Camino de Santiago when I read this but I found myself captivated by this novel’s intriguing premise and likeable characters.

As the title flags, ‘Once Upon A Camino’ is essentially a fairy tale—and a most enjoyable one at that! The hero Tom’s quest is to walk the Camino to win his bride, and just as with Bunyan’s Pilgrim, there are obstacles and monsters he and his companions must overcome on the way. Elements of Spanish history and characters’ backstories are deftly integrated. The narrative maintains a brisk pace that marches towards a satisfying but surprising denouement.
