One Woman's Search For Everything Across Italy, India And Indonesia
A funny, tender, utterly beguiling story about a woman's search for happiness
It's three a.m. Liz, a thirty-something writer, is sobbing on the bathroom floor while her husband sleeps next door. She wants to walk out of her marriage but she's not sure she can. Panicked and utterly lost, Liz begins to do something she's never done before. She starts to pray.
At this point everything in her life begins to change. A divorce and a painful love affair follow. But then begins Liz's year-long journey to seek happiness: four months in Rome where she learns Italian and gains twenty five pounds, four months in her Guru's ashram in India where she struggles to enjoy the never ending meditation, and finally to Bali, to spend some time with an old medicine man, who looks uncannily like Yoda. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.
