Publisher's Summary

This book will rock your beliefs about fear, security, and taking risks.

In Movement There Is Peace is a powerful tale of travel, adventure, and unexpected faith. It begins with a doctor who walks away from her practice in order to cure her own paralyzing anxiety. Once free, she discovers that leaving is really only fleeing if there's no new direction. Could this be the reason for her husband's sudden inspiration?

"I want us to walk the Camino de Santiago; it's an 800-kilometer pilgrimage across Spain."

After deliberating the wisdom of walking 500 miles with no planning or physical conditioning and little religious faith, the two set off to walk the "Way of Saint James". Their "no-plan" plan sets off a series of extraordinary events that can only be explained as divine intervention. It starts with an enigmatic suggestion from a former pilgrim who sends them off with a caution: "There are no coincidences on the Camino."

The tale itself is a funny, fascinating pilgrim's progress seeded by unique characters and full of amazing surprises. Follow along the pilgrim's path as it shares its secrets on how to:

  • Create a life that's unafraid of death
  • Experience emotional lightness by carrying a smaller physical load
  • Journey without plans, and have more fun doing it
  • Make a leap of faith, and land closer to paradise

If you've ever doubted yourself or your abilities, listen to this book. "Lose the fear...live the life!"

What a journey!

Would you consider the audio edition of In Movement There Is Peace to be better than the print version?

It was good to hear Elaine and Joe in their own voices and words. You really heard the struggles they were going through and felt the physical and emotional pain by hearing it.

What other book might you compare In Movement There Is Peace to and why?

The movie The Way, but this was more detailed

Which scene was your favorite?

I could hear Elaine's voice crack near the end and really felt she was at a breaking point, but the serenity and cal;m that she found also showed through. The walk kept me riveted and I felt like I was walking with them. I want to do this myself someday.

Any additional comments?

Both the male and female narrators did an excellent job. I actually thought that they were the authors until I looked it up. I will look for more books that they narrate. They seemed to have a great connection.

The whole book was good

book. I really was not sure how much I would enjoy it, as sometimes religious type books gan get a bit preachy. No worries with this book. It is so inspiring. I really liked the way both authors told of their separate but joined experiences on the trail.

I will listen to this book again and again. That is how much I loved it and I know I will get a lot out of it each time I listen to it.

Great book

Enjoyed immensely this book. I found it very moving. Something I will listen to more than once. Great book for hikers too. Applies to any long hike I think. Is not the outdoors always a spiritual and personal experience?

Great "walk" with Joe and Elaine

I truly enjoyed this book. Listening to the story on Audible as I walked helped to motivate me in my new walking regimen. It felt like I was walking with people who understood that it is difficult to get moving after such a long period of inactivity. There were times, though, that I turned off the story just to listen to the birds and wind and traffic. The story is inspiring and has started me thinking of my next experience/adventure.

Inspiring to the max!

This was an awesome book. Every bit of it brought images and feelings as if I were on the Camino with the authors. I was already planning to walk the Camino and this served as a big motivator to actually work to make the trip happen! Thank you so much for sharing your story and experiences.

Good story abou the Camino.

If you could sum up In Movement There Is Peace in three words, what would they be?

It was a well written and honest memoir of the Camino.

Any additional comments?

It was an enjoyable listen, and I will listen to it again at some point. Honest from the prospective of just how hard the walk was for them both. Neither author droned on endlessly about their own issues, and like all of us, they had baggage they brought along. It was nice to see them addressing and dealing with their real life issues. We all have them, and it makes me want to walk the Camino someday to deal with mine. I am not religious any way, but what better cathartic is there besides walking!

My Camino Revisited

Can’t say enough great praise for the book and audio. Allow yourself a listen to it.
I could not stop listening. I even bought the book itself. It captured and reflecting my own Camino. The trials and tribulations are true. The people are real. My own Camino resulted in a relationship break up. I now realize why it occurred. The Camino does work in wondrous ways.
This book put my thoughts into words. I have shared this book with friends and Camino family friends.
Buen Camino

Now I want to do it myself!!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES!!!! This audiobook is a powerful and moving travel guide to the Camino and everything about it made me want to do it.

What did you like best about this story?

You can hear the emotion and uncertainty and growth in their voices. The narration was great and I especially felt Elaine's questioning and pain and sometimes fear.

What does Pamela Almand and Scott Thomas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They were perfect for the roles and I'd like to listen to more of their audiobooks.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

YES!!!! I WANT TO DO THE CAMINO!!!

I loved every step!

What made the experience of listening to In Movement There Is Peace the most enjoyable?

The subtle humour and authenticy of the writer's voices. Elaine and Joe take you on a very personal experience and let the reader feel like you are there too. A wonderful book about the Camino De Santiago....I too watched The way and read the Pilgrim by Paulo Coehlo and this book ranks up there with them!! Well done Elaine and Joe!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both main characters were great, I was able to relate to each one at different stages and phases of their journey. I felt a connection with each of them and when I do the Camino De Santiago I'm going to write and let them know......who knows maybe they'll meet up with me like Dan did in the end..

What about Pamela Almand and Scott Thomas ’s performance did you like?

Yes perfect voice!

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

That when I do my Camino to give myself the space & permission to stop when need to stop and stay at a private Lodging/hotel or Alberge without making myself wrong for choosing comfort if needed....thank you for that.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this book a few times over because I learn something new about myself when I do. I want to do this pilgrimage for the last 2 yrs with every fiber of my being but I have 2 kids 11 & 13 and a husband that said he will only come if we ride bikes so that is his way and I know that I do not want to share my Way on those terms....does that make me inflexible? I guess that's one of the things I will learn along the way....do not worry or control the outcome and just let things unfold naturally.... since I understand this concept I have not pushed an outcome for I know it will happen in its perfect time. I use your book to fill a spot in my heart until I am able to take my walk. I am so thankful that you wrote this book and that you followed your path, it has given me more umph to follow my path....I did start riding my bike to work while listening btw and it felt a little like I was there when I would stop and have a drink of water and I'd close my eyes imagining the hot sun, and dusty boots and heavy pack on my back, the sweat dripping from under my backpack that I wear to ride but I just don't have the sore feet.....lol I'll save that for the real thing.....Buen Camino! Lol....Sincerely Carla Elliott

a very honest account of walking the Camino

I loved listening to this book as I have just completed part of the Camino. I feel I should have walked for longer....
I loved the way you hear the husband and the wife's story side by side. Very clever. I didn't always like the accents of the English people and some of the other nationalities whose English was their mother tongue. But it is a great book .

Good story but...

I enjoyed the story well enough but I found the female narrator spoilt my full enjoyment. From her atrocious accents to her truly irritating downspeak, I cringed at many a sentence. The journey was well enough described but did not inspire me at all - despite the fact I have a friend about to embark on this epic journey and I had considered joining her.

Hard work

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing. It was doomed from the start. How walking anywhere in Europe can be made so boring beats me.

What was most disappointing about Elaine Orabona Foster, PhD and Joseph Wilbred Foster III ’s story?

Ten percent Camino-- that was the good bit. Ninety percent self analysing her own strange fears and then having the nerve to try to fix other peoples problems.
The sort of person I stay well clear of when travelling/walking.
It was boring and uncomfortable and I think her husband deserved a medal, though he gradually became a bit the same as his wife, unfortunately.

How could the performance have been better?

The female voice was depressing and stressed, though I suppose it suited the depressing character she was portraying.
The Australian accents were dreadful, and no, not every Australian speaks like Steve Irwin, just like most Americans don't speak like Forest Gump!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, and occasionally anger that such a wonderful experience ( for most people) can be reduced to this. I suggest the authors do the Camino again, don't take notes, don't write a book, and just try to enjoy the walk.

Any additional comments?

I really struggled to get to the end, and derived no pleasure or personal enlightenment or benefit from this book.
