This book is a series of essays based on the seasons. I was able to pick it up and read a bit, put it away and pick it up again without losing the narative. I truly enjoyed reading about her journey from a divorce and sadness to a satisfying life on her own. I loaned the book to another person, I hope I get it back as it is a comforting book to read and well worth reading again.

I enjoyed this book very much. I am an animal lover, my dogs are a great joy to me. Now I understand better what they are doing and why.

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert
Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything across Italy, India and Indonesia

I enjoyed reading this book. It is a bit too self pitying, she does have a few pity parties on the way, but, on the whole I enjoyed reading it. Italy was so inviting that I want to visit and learn Italian!

A nice read not too deep but still a good book.
