Beneath Wandering Stars by Ashlee Cowles Summary: Beneath Wandering Stars by Ashlee Cowles After her soldier brother is horribly wounded in Afghanistan, Gabriela must honor the vow she made: If anything ever happened to him, she would walk the Camino de Santiago through Spain, making a pilgrimage in his name.
