"Impulse is intuition on Crack. If Intuition is the prudent angel who carefully directs your spirit, then Impulse is its mischief-making twin. The "imp in impulse." And thus begins Jane Christmas's second book chronicling a walk a very long walk taken to celebrate her 50th birthday and face the challenges of mid-life. From a chance encounter, Jane Christmas is inspired to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, a goal she mentioned in a CBC radio interview. That casual mention insipired others, too, and Christmas finds herself "leader" of 14 women who have all signed on to hike the Camino with her. Before leaving, a psychic warns her of catfights, death, and a sexy, fair-haired man. Udaunted, Christmas soldiers on. In vivid, irreverant style, she recounts the joys and struggles she encountered on this challenging pilgrimage - her battles with loneliness, group dynamics, and exhaustion, and more. What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim is one trip neither the author or listener will forget.
