JEN HUTCHISON – MOTHERLING: A WALK

Motherlingis a heart-wrenching and heart-warming examination of the nature of grief, loss and processing the many confronting notions of what 'gone' means to a mother who has lost her adult child. Jen Hutchinson walked with her son's ashes on the pilgrimage of Camino de Santiago in Spain as part of her commitment to coming to terms with her grief and finding herself and a future. This is a memoir of love, hope, grief and an 800 kilometre walk from unimaginable loss to peace of mind.
