 One woman, one myth, three goddesses

When Cookery teacher Kate Canavan’s perfect life falls apart she moves to nearby Galway City.
Her friend James urges her to love and nurture herself, but mischievous Ella persuades her to dust off her unused dating skills. So Kate explores the world of on- line dating using the name of a Greek Goddess. In the midst of a mad dating frenzy, Kate has a traumatic health scare which convinces her to drop everything and go in search of a guru.
First stop a famous healer's ashram in Brazil followed by a shamanic journey through Peru, where a shaman tells her how to harness the energy of the Goddess and the Divine Feminine. Kate’s journey of self discovery continues apace after she returns home and events unfold in a surprising manner, as she learns to think for herself.  


What a way to spend the week! From the very beginning to the end was a roller-coaster ride! While trying to please everyone, especially her husband who is OCD to the max, character Kate Canavan's life goes topsy tervy in every way possible. 

Well she pick herself up and start all over, well she stay where she is and hit things head on. Or does she move ahead and follow the advice of her dear friends.  My heart ached for her and I was pulling for Kate from the beginning to the end. 

Author Mary Elizabeth Coen has hit it out of the ball park on her first book. I want her next book now. Her style of writing is epic. One minute you are yelling the next your crying, then throwing the book at who ever is near you just because they are the only ones in your site. 


I would give this amazing book a:
