I am quirky individual that enjoys the road less traveled. True stories, divine entities and all things cosmic. I think Elizabeth's story portrays those exact words and when you trust the universe it'll guide you to places you never knew existed. I found it to be a great read not a good read as everyone can discover something about themselves from this journey of being honest from within.

I found the book incredibly enlightening and enjoyable to read. The way the author so honestly told her story made it easy to keep turning pages. A great look into how ever day stress can take a toll on us all and how one person's journey can give hope and guidance. I would strongly recommend this book

I found this book as a great read for those who like adventure and spirituality. The author does a good job describing her emotions and the light and dark sides of her journey. The title suits the premise of the book.

Couldn't get through the first chapter. Forced prose and self-centered author.

I enjoyed this autobiographical story of the author coming to terms with life and trying to find meaning in it. A well written spiritual, travel, adventure memoir and a great read. The descriptions and experiences beautifully conveyed traveling in India and in spiritual insights were good. The book is quite long but I recommend it it heartily.
