Review quote

'Trish Griffin has delivered an absorbing tale of triumph, a compulsory study for those contemplating a pilgrimage.' Bruce Langner



'Dancing on the Head of a Pin is as profound as its title. It's an invitation and a warning, but above all it's a courageous testament to the pilgrim spirit. Griffin is funny and knowledgeable. Her book is an unputdownable read.' Gail Morgan, author.



'Trish Griffin has written a deeply personal book that embraces her passion for living, revealing her wicked humour, physical prowess, intelligence, and a defiance against all odds. At the height of Trish's triathlon career, aged 38, she was diagnosed as a "brittle diabetic", but undeterred by the dire consequences of this family curse, her determination to embrace a full life did not waiver. In May 2012, she was invited to trek the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. The gruelling event led her to a spiritual awareness and a strength which defines her to this day--acceptance, a love of nature, and an appreciation of life's bounty.' Sandra Rutter, Dip Ed.
