Peace troubadour James Twyman joins me to talk about love, healing, and his new book Giovanni and the Camino if St. Francis.
James has written a stunning novel about Anna, an Italian immigrant living in Portland, Oregon was shunned from her hometown of Assisi at age 16. She vowed that she would never return to the family who cast her out, but one day, while browsing a bookstore, a walking guide to the Camino of St. Francis falls and knocks her on the head. Reluctantly. she answers the call to return to Italy and walk in the steps of the humble Saint Francis in an attempt to reconcile the wounds of her past.
