women and relationships.

Going from reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed to The Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright was kind of ironic. Both about women who recently lost their mothers, ended their relationships and walked a lot of miles. I am glad Kim Wright's latest showed up when it did.

Che Milan (noted wine blogger) has just been dumped, and her mother has died of cancer recently, but not the promise Che made to bring her ashes to Canterbury. Wanting to get away from her horrible life anyways, she decides to hire a tour guide and take the pilgrimage on foot - sixty miles outside of London to fulfill her mother's wishes (even though she didn't even like her that much). Eight other very different woman join her for their various reasons, and the whole thing turns into a giant journey of self discovery. Great read.
