(Review from the author)
it was amazing
bookshelves: wrote-it

Honorable Mention in General Fction at the 2012 Green Books Festival.

Publishers Weekly says:
"Each chapter of this unassuming novel is illustrated with a card from the tarot, and the contents of each section are loosely related to the meaning of the corresponding card. Cleare’s narrative follows Emily, a young woman on a path of self-realization and awakening.... The novel is well plotted [and] Cleare offers a little bit of self-help and a little bit of chick lit, packaged together with a positive, make-your-own-destiny message: a pleasant, comforting read."

Midwest Book Review says:
"Through the unknown, we can find something magnificent. "Destined" tells the story of Emily, who takes a job at a curio shop and delves into the occult and mystery. A novel of romance and the life of the occult and the tarot, it's a fascinating break into this culture and the belief in mysticism. "Destined" is a thoughtful and much recommended novel of tarot."
