    COMPOSTELA, A LOVE STORY ON THE CAMINO is the story of trajectories that deviate, that unite, that seek each other out.
    Certainly, because this novel tells the story of a pilgrimage on the road to Santiago de Compostela but also, secretly, because through Lucie and Frank, it is about two people who, at that moment of their lives, have broken with the routine. Who have left their daily life, their obligations, to find themselves there, in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, facing a completely different horizon. Two destinies for the antipodes who will progress together towards Saint-Jacques, who will never cease to converge, to intertwining each other ... to merge better or to separate better ?

    Several levels of reading appear in the course of this love story on the Camino... First of all, it gives itself as a travel narrative, with all that this genre allows for the discovery of landscapes, personalities, arts of living... It then reveals itself as the relationship between two bodies and two souls, through trials, pains, questions... It is finally a surprising psychological work ; the novelist succeeds in breathing, behind the contemplative, a deaf introspective dimension leading to overwhelming revelations.
