Description

The Attachment: Letters from a most unlikely friendship

Join Ailsa Piper and Tony Doherty as they share the expression of an engaging friendship, encapsulated in their recently published book The Attachment.

The book’s genesis arose when Ailsa Piper published Sinning Across Spain, a personal account of her memorable and demanding 1200 kilometre pilgrimage trek from southern to northern Spain, encompassing the famous El Camino route. Impressed by her book, Tony Doherty, an 80 year old priest, wrote to her to express his appreciation and a series of communications flowed back and forth between them.

They shared their delight in poetry and wrestled with what it means to love and to grieve. This energetic exchange of words, questions and ideas grew into an unexpected but treasured friendship. This correspondence forms the basis of their book, brimming with empathy, humour and a fierce curiosity - an intriguing and moving celebration of connectedness, an illuminating journey into the heart.
