About the Author
Jane V. Blanchard, an award-winning author, was born in Hartford, Connecticut. She lived in Hampstead, New Hampshire, twenty-three years before moving to Sarasota, Florida, where she now resides. Jane loves the outdoors. She climbed her first mountain, Mount Washington, in 1974. Since that initial ascent, Jane has climbed twenty of the forty 4,000-foot mountains in New England. She started mountain bike racing at age 50; in 2002, she won second place in the Masters Division EFTA Championship Series. In September and October 2011, Jane, then a sexagenarian, hiked the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage across northern Spain. As she walked, she talked with women from different nations. The book, Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino, weaves these conversations with Jane's journey. When Jane married in 1974, her husband, Dennis and she joked about creating a lifetime of memories to chat about when sitting in their rockers in old age. Now that she is approaching 70 years old, Jane is still creating memories, experiencing life as fully as possible, and looking forward to a long future.

the Camino (the reason why I bought the book!) The writing left much to be desired so I never got to fully "know" these women. It was as if they answered a questionnaire, no depth or insight at all. I am sure their stories were wonderful, just not brought out in this book.
As to the author, I found her writing dry, repetitive and not at all engaging. The constant whining of what she was going through, along with her not-too-subtle humble-bragging became really tiring after a few chapters. I hope she is not as unlikeable as her own writing makes her out to be.
Very poor grammatical constructions throughout - irritating for even me: a foreigner - impeded the pleasure of accompanying the Author and her husband on the Camino. Still, Blanchard's account is a good source of information that is not typically included in guide books. Overall, an interesting vicarious journey.
