Shadows, Shells, and Spain (Summer Nomad Publications, November 17, 2017, $16.95) is the new fictional travel memoir from John Meyer that combines the fun facts of history with present-day drama and humour. Arriving in time for Christmas, his new thrilling adventure marches along the ancient Camino trail from Pamplona to Santiago de Compostela. It’s a bold, new take on a modern-day pilgrimage that feeds the mind and soul of every character while testing the limits of their bodies... and their comfort zones.
Lost and listless on the island of Mallorca, Jamie Draper searches for his estranged wife, Pam, who has left him without any explanation or warning. Exploring her last known location, Jamie stumbles upon an urgent letter from his missing wife promising full disclosure as to her sudden departure and her current whereabouts. There’s just one catch: her mysterious adventure is disclosed in a series of letters she’s left hidden along the ancient Camino trail across northern Spain. Now armed with a list of clues to track the letters down, Jamie retraces Pam’s footsteps, while being both entertained and challenged by the many colorful Camino characters he meets along the way—including the enchanting Brie, who harbors her own secrets that just might compromise Jamie’s intended reunion with his wife.
This book is more than a travel memoir. It’s another distinctive entry into the travel literary genre that not only promises entertaining drama, but also provides accurate and amusing descriptions of the local people and places—which will hopefully enrich and inspire everyone to embark on their own remarkable Camino adventure!
