In an evocative mix of Travel and Memoir, an Anglican fallen out of love with the church is yet drawn to walk the Camino de Santiago, where, deeply moved by meetings with other restless hearts on journeys to meaning, he begins to find his way again.
Roy Uprichard was born in Belfast and, as a mature student graduated from Queen's University with a BA Hons in Politics and Sociology and an MSSc in Irish Political Studies. Prior to that, he had to work for a living. Then, for the next twenty-four years, he lectured in Further Education, working with young adults with learning difficulties.
In 2010, in a partially successful assault on middle-age-spread, he trekked part of the Annapurna circuit in Nepal and began to write. In 2012 he discovered the Camino Frances and, on his retirement in 2014, returned to walk its entirety, recorded in his travel memoir, Restless Hearts. He has since walked on the Camino Portuguese and St Cuthbert's Way in Northumbria.
