"Ridnouer's debut novel relates the gentle spiritual journey undertaken by three American women living in Dublin. At heart this novel is a spiritual quest, with portents, metaphor and prodigious symbolism. A story as observant and thoughtful as the lives of Irish monks; rewarding for contemplative readers."
-Kirkus Reviews"Hillwalking is well written, emotionally involving, gently educational, spiritually accurate, and please excuse me but I feel like going for a walk now. Five stars." -Self-Publishing Review
