"A Furnace Full of God" is transcendent, the best Camino book written to date...Rebekah Scott has written a classic."
-- George Greenia, founder of the Institute for Pilgrimage Studies.
"A Furnace Full of God: A Holy Year on the Camino de Santiago" is a memoir of expatriate life in a tiny town on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage path. Years in the writing, it's the story of an American writer who moved with her wise-cracking English husband to Spain to "live the dream" and integrate into the slow rhythms of a farming town on the Meseta. Here are the pilgrims who stayed with them at their "Peaceable Kingdom" farmstead: saints, sinners, lunatics, nuns, and bums; Here are the villagers who made them welcome in Moratinos. And behind it all is the voice of Rebekah, the author and instigator who tossed aside a promising career in journalism to pursue this foolishness.
"A Furnace Full of God," 247 pages, soft cover.
