Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By the time Laura Munson had turned 40, her life was not how she thought it would turn out. Career success had eluded her; her beloved father was no longer around to be her biggest cheerleader; and her husband wanted out of their marriage.

Poignant, wise, and often exceedingly funny, this is the moment-by-moment memoir of a woman who decided to let go — in the midst of the emotional equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane. It recounts what happened as Munson set out on her spiritual journey — and provides raw, powerful inspiration to anyone searching for peace in an utterly unpredictable world.

Review:

"Ever hear about the power of positive thinking? Ever wonder what it looks like in real life? Ever run up against some rocky places in your relationship that scare the crap out of you? If you answered yes, read this book. Now. I for one devoured it in 24 hours. It's pure real life illumination." Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

About the Author

Most times I felt that Munson provided a helpful take on what could have been a devastating situation. A few times, it seemed too pat.
