My Review:  
OH MY GOODNESS!! I dove head first into this book and did not want to come up for air. This book grabbed my attention and held it all the way through. And my emotions went all over the place...  No I Am Not Kidding!!

My feelings for this book is the following: Plot- Love, Characters - Love, Format-wish I had in hard back, Author- feel in love with her writing, The End- WHERE IS THE NEXT BOOK!!!

I absolutely love the main character, Kate Canavan. Talk about the rug being pulled out from under you, she has. But a women who soon finds a way to hopefully get her life back on track. Or does she? In some ways I can relate to her. Always been held to someone else's life or standards. 

Author Mary Elizabeth Coen has done an amazingly awesome job. Hit on all the base's and out of the ball park with this one.  

A MUST READ!  A Top Notch, Ladies book that will change the way you may deal with the men in your life. 
So due to the above, if I could it would be higher, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 

Five Clock Rating!!!

About the Author:

First of all I’m Irish born and bred, apart from spending the greater part of my first two years living in London, of which I remember little.
Though I always dreamed of being a writer, I took a rather circuitous route to getting here. You could say I have had several incarnations in this lifetime from Home Economics teacher to Fashion Editor of a magazine, along with being mother to my three wonderful children, Mark, Janet and Emily. Due to demand from clients I opened my own pr consultancy firm specializing in fashion; - the dream job for a fashionista, availing of great discounts on wonderful shoes and vintage clothing!
Sadly it was not meant to last, as my health deteriorated in 2004 and as a result, work had to take a back seat. I became interested in holistic medicine, personal development and writing in an attempt to cope with my diagnosis of fibromyalgia. In the process, I developed a passion for mythology, philosophy and the study of ancient spiritual traditions. As a spiritual seeker, I’ve travelled to Mayan sites in Mexico, visited a famous healer’s ashram in Brazil and undertaken a shamanic journey through Peru. I am also a trained bio-energy therapist and have my Grandfather’s ability to channel healing for others.
I love to dance, walk in nature and cook for family and friends.

I run a website called Goddess MECA which stands for Mary Elizabeth Coen Assists the Goddess in everywoman through sharing my love of cookery fashion and mythology.
