THE PROMISED LAND by Elizabeth Musser, (The Swan House Series), Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

“It’s about the journey, not the destination.”
Come experience the Camino, the pilgrim trail, through the eyes of three souls seeking resolution. Abbie, Bobby and Caroline, three unique voices, three different stories, three separate journeys, converge on one pilgrimage on the Camino in France. They need to decide if they are searching for their Promised Land or God’s.
“God’s truth hurts. It pierces.”
There is profound, Godly wisdom to be found when all is stripped away and you are forced to look at yourself through God’s eyes. Wisdom comes from old and young characters alike.
This is a beautifully written story that has diverse elements to it. A mystery, a love story, heartaches, joy, fascinating details, and wondrous scenery that speaks of the creation of God. “It is like God’s nature everywhere tells us He is big and wonderful and worthy for us to give Him praise.”
I urge you to take this journey in this mesmerizing book. It makes me want to read the companion books in this series.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House on behalf of the author. I was not required to give a favorable review. All opinions are my own.*I give this 5 + stars and a very strong faith thread. 
BackCover Blurb:
With her oldest son taking a gap year in Europe, her aging father losing his sight and his memory, and her husband of twenty years announcing that he's leaving her, Abbie Jowett is surrounded by overwhelming loss.

Desperate to mend her marriage and herself, she follows her son, Bobby, to walk the famed Camino pilgrimage. During their journey they encounter Rasa, an Iranian woman working in secret helping other refugees, and Caroline, a journalist who is studying pilgrims on the Camino while searching for answers from her broken past.

Each individual has their own reasons for the pilgrimage, but together they learn that the Camino strips you bare and calls you into deep soul-searching that can threaten all your best laid plans.
