I just finished Saeeda's memoir and found it to be a page-turner. I both totally enjoyed it and learned a lot from it-- she is full of wisdom, and is incredibly open about her life.

An interesting book about a woman who embraced a holitistic lifestyle and made it work for her. While personally I'm not into the New Age stuff, the author's personal story was interesting. She struggled, moved around, got disillusioned, but ultimately found a life that works for her. Thanks to NetGalley for the advance read.
