In 2008 Phil McCarthy, a Bristol GP, walked 1,200 miles from Canterbury to Rome alone, in his 50th year. Rome Alone describes the joys and difficulties of modern pilgrimage in an age of doubt and confusion. The Via Francigena is the route that pilgrims followed to Rome until the Reformation. Rome Alone is a vivid description of walking the Via Francigena. The author describes the journey with anecdotes and reflections that will connect with people of any faith and none. The book brings the Via Francigena to life by describing the journey with its historical and cultural setting. This book is a valuable resource for anyone considering a undertaking a pilgrimage. Pilgrimage has increased in popularity as church going has declined. Rome Alone is an exploration of the significance and possibilities of pilgrimage in the Twenty First Century and how it feels to "roam alone" for three months.
