  • About the Edition

    The Chemin, also known as the Camino de Santiago, is a centuries-old pilgrim route that ends in Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain. Every year, thousands of walkers--some devout, many not--follow the route that wends through quaint small villages and along busy highways alike, a journey unlike any other. Zoe, an artist from California who"s still reeling from her husband"s sudden death, has impulsively decided to walk the Camino, hoping to find solace and direction. Martin, an engineer from England, is road-testing a cart of his own design...and recovering from a messy divorce. They begin in the same French town, each uncertain of what the future holds. Zoe has anticipated the physical difficulties of her trek, but she is less prepared for other challenges, as strangers and circumstances force her to confront not just recent loss, but long-held beliefs. For Martin, the pilgrimage is a test of his skills and endurance but also, as he and Zoe grow closer, of his willingness to trust others--and himself--again.

    Or is it too late to outfox the fox? Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. What agitates you? What a big potential stress relief for many of us. Maybe this was due to the audiobook performance, maybe I read this on a bad day, maybe the trail completely outshined everything else which is an explanation I could live withbut it was my experience nonetheless.

    And how can healing come when there's so much left unresolved? But what does hope look like when old grief keeps resurfacing? Finalist, Religious Adult Fiction Four friends continue to learn lessons of faith even after their spiritual retreat has ended. Partly it is a highly entertaining and frequently humorous story, especially through the wickedly droll depiction of the different nationalities, but also Two Steps Forward reveals the way in which we hurt ourselves as well as others, how we need to be kind to, and honest with, ourselves and how spirituality and contentment are not found in buildings or places, but within ourselves.

Two Steps Forward offers spiritual insights of the rarest beauty about both the pain and the peace at the 'growing edges' in our life with God. The blisters, aches and pains, having dinner at 5pm because the thought of staying awake until 10pm to eat with locals is inconceivableand the early morning search for brewed coffee. The way the author conveys the transforming nature of their spiritual growth is brilliant and compelling.

Two steps forward book

She's offered him a job, but nothing else. Her lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression are starting to overcome her. Find your own spiritual journey reflected in the lives of these women and discover the way forward.

Sharon Brown does a masterful job of giving the reader a glimpse of what that process is like through the stories of four different women looking for peace and hope. Or is it too late to outfox the fox?

I highly recommend it. Each facing specific challenges, the friends learn that God is with us, even now, even here, in the midst of our own mess.

No fee was paid by the author for this review. My own heart has been enlarged for more of Jesus as a result of Two Steps Forward! Wheaties, boy-genius, doesn't mind where he's spending the summer, so long as lovable Lucy is nearby. Sometimes life feels like two steps forward and one step back.

Ben, the Aussie athlete god, would rather be spending his school break playing footy with his mates back in Melbourne. Through a series of letters to Wren, Katherine reflects on the meaning of Christ's suffering and shares her own story of finding hope. Mara, a wife and mother, longs for her difficult family life to improve.

But what does hope look like when tension escalates and circumstances only get worse? Sometimes, Brown lovingly shows, God doesn't clean up the messes of life. The woman holds a serious grudge against Sylvie and her son, and hiring Jimmy Fisher will only fan the flames of Edith's rancor.

More importantly. Back and broke in Stoney Ridge, Jimmy Fisher has coasted as long as he could through life on charm, good looks, and deep-set dimples. Stunning scenery aside, Simsion and Buist's entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable romance captures the tedium of the Camino.

Two Steps Forward: A Story of Persevering in Hope

To read this book is to learn to hope. Sometimes he calms the storm, but sometimes he just calms his child. The way the author conveys the transforming nature of their spiritual growth is brilliant and compelling. A bit smug, he's not an easy character to like, but his flaws make for compelling reading.

But each of them is finding roadblocks along the way. Learn to linger with what provokes you. I loved this element. But what does hope look like when nothing goes as planned?

Then there's Charissa. But as Zoe and Martin discover only miles into their epic journey, the first lesson of the Camino is that everyone does it their own way. Yet in Brown's honest and tender narrative, their friendship with each other and their openness to God's work in their lives continues to draw them toward light and new life, bearing witness to light in the darkness.

In alternating chapters, Zoe from California — arty, broke and reeling from the recent death of her long-term partner — and Martin, an engineer from England, barely coping with the acrimonious end of his marriage, begin their Camino as strangers.
