The story of a fired and disillusioned Christian radio couple who set off to walk a 500-mile pilgrimage across Spain.Chris and Emilee Danielson have just lost their jobs as morning hosts, apparently for the crime of being on the wrong side of forty, and no other stations are returning calls. After a chance encounter with a Marine-turned-Catholic priest, they decide to walk the world-famous Camino de Santiago.

"I just "walked" the Camino de Santiago and didn't need a passport, backpack or leave the comfort of my couch! This is a wonderful, engaging story of an American couple on an unexpected journey. It is a story of faith, doubt and trust. At the end of each chapter you will find yourself quickly turning the page to read the next chapter. Buy one book for yourself; buy a second one to gift to a friend." 

"Burden Stone is an easy read. I felt as if I was journeying with Chris and Emilee on their pilgrimage and couldn't put it down - waiting to see what happened next. The story was a good reminder that when we purposely seek God - He often reveals himself in surprising and unexpected ways." - Kim
