Camino Winds

by John Grisham, Camino Winds Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Camino Winds books, “The best thriller writer alive.” – Ken Follett John Grisham, #1 bestselling author and master of the legal thriller, sweeps you away to paradise for a little sun, sand, mystery, and mayhem. With Camino Winds, America’s favorite storyteller offers the perfect escape. Welcome back to Camino Island, where anything can happen—even a murder in the midst of a hurricane, which might prove to be the perfect crime . . . Just as Bruce Cable’s Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for the island. Florida’s governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm. The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce’s and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson’s injuries suggests that the storm wasn’t the cause of his death: He has suffered several suspicious blows to the head. Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed in the aftermath of the storm and ill equipped to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson’s novels might be more real than fictional. And somewhere on Nelson’s computer is the manuscript of his new novel. Could the key to the case be right there—in black and white? As Bruce starts to investigate, what he discovers between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson’s plot twists—and far more dangerous. Camino Winds is an irresistible romp and a perfectly thrilling beach read—# 1 bestselling author John Grisham at his beguiling best.

[a] fast-moving, entertaining tale.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, impossible to resist. Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in unsavory ventures. Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous monetary offer convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Cable’s circle of literary friends, to get close to the ringleader, to discover his secrets. But soon Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise—as only John Grisham can deliver it.

Camino Walk

by Marie-Laure Valandro, Camino Walk Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Camino Walk books, In Camino Walk, Marie-Laure Valandro takes readers on a very personal pilgrimage along the centuries-old Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela (the Way of St James) is literally a path of devotion to the beings of Christianity to Christ, to Mary, and to Saint James, for whom the Camino and the cathedral at the end are named. The Camino de Santiago winds its way through terrain that ranges from high plateaus to rugged mountain trails. It is a challenging pilgrimage during which inner and outer paths meet. Beginning in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques of southern France, the author traveled approximately 800 kilometers to Santiago on the northwest coast of Spain. Along the way, with the many other pilgrims on the path, she experienced an international community of the heart, shared by the many thousands of pilgrims of past, present, and future who have walked the path for more than a thousand years. Marie-Laure Valandro offers her fascinating and personal observations of the Camino and its fellowship, joys, pains, and hardships. She describes the many pilgrims she encountered and, most important, invites the reader to share her interior journey to Santiago and to wholeness. Camino Walk offers a step-by-step account of the transformation that is possible when ordinary life falls away and we make room for gratitude and wonder for all that we encounter on our own path."

Walking In Love

by Roy W. Howard, Walking In Love Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Walking In Love books, The journey begins in a French village at the base of the Pyrenees Mountains and ends in a Spanish village overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. In between is a path that millions of pilgrims have walked since the 12th century. In the spring of 2015, I was one of them, on sabbatical from my pastorate. The way is known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, a 500-mile path over the mountains and across northern Spain. Modern pilgrims are a mixed company of many languages, some traditionally religious and others non-religious, though walking with an explicit and often spiritual intent. I didn't walk as a religious penitent seeking absolution from my sins. I did walk with a purpose. I wanted to listen closely for God's direction, particularly for the next chapter of my life. I also wanted to be radically free from my normal patterns to see my life from a fresh angle. This is the story of what occurred as I walked this path with a remarkable company of pilgrims from all over the world. My daily observations are recorded here, along with a few chants and scriptures that guided my way and deepened my intentions. The poet Wendell Berry said, "Always in the big woods when you leave familiar ground and step into a new place there will be ... a little nagging of dread. It is the ancient fear of the Unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into. What you are doing is exploring. You are undertaking the first experience, not of the place, but of yourself in that place." From the first day I crossed the mountains, walking through snow and rain in the bitter cold, the Camino became an exploration of self-understanding in an utterly new place. The freedom was exhilarating. The sense of the Unknown and the nagging dread remained with me, along with the company of pilgrims who became my Camino family. Several remain so. Daily at dawn, I would arise from my bunk bed, place my belongings in a small backpack, and walk out the door. The Camino winds through wide valleys and small villages, among vineyards and the vast grasslands of the high plains. It crosses the rugged mountains of Galicia before descending to Santiago. The spring flowers are breathtaking, especially the acres of brilliant red tulips on the hills. Bird songs are abundant, including the ubiquitous call of the cuckoo. Most days, I didn't know what I would eat, where I would sleep, or whom I would meet. I had a wondrous sense of being on the edge of fear and faith.
