Book Launch & Lunchtime Talk “Walking Back to Happiness”
Wed 13 November, 2019 at 1:00 pm until 1:30 pm
“Walking Back to Happiness: Rebuilding a Marriage One Step at a Time” by the Revd Penelope Swithinbank
LUNCHTIME TALK (20-30 MINS) FOLLOWED BY BOOK SIGNING WITH THE AUTHOR
Revd Penelope Swithinbank, writer, pilgrimage leader and one of Bath Abbey’s Chaplains, has written a book about her and her husband, Kim’s epic journey across France. Part travelogue and part pilgrimage, the book describes their journey as they encounter new faces and new experiences, and reconnect with each other and with God. Every step of the way, you’ll also discover more about yourself and what’s really important to you.
Penelope has worked in churches in the UK and the USA, and has led pilgrimages in the UK and in Europe. She and her husband Kim, both vicars who have been married for more than 40 years recently embarked on a journey to find healing and restoration. Their marriage in tatters, with wounds reaching far back into the past, Kim and Penelope travel along the 320-mile route across rural France, from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, and stumble across fresh truths, some ordinary, others extraordinary. But will they be defeated by the road ahead or triumph over the pain of the past?
