One woman’s heartwarming story about starting over and embracing life, one simple moment at a time.
Shattered when her 25-year marriage comes to an abrupt and painful end, writer Mary Jane Grant runs away to London to immerse herself in any reality but her own. Reeling from the shock and loss of her marriage and the life she’s known, she begins to discover that if she can just focus on the moment, take notice of the people, the sights and smells around her, that her pain and grief start to recede.
From the bustling cafes of Camden and the pastel-coloured streets of Primrose Hill, to the sun soaked vineyards of the south of France, her journey leads her to rich new experiences that she could never have imagined in her old life. Real connections are made, she lets go of the things she no longer needs, and takes pleasure in the good, generous and beautiful parts of life that she encounters every day.
Beautifully told, this is a story about what happens when you embrace life, whatever it may bring, with surprising – and joyful – results.
‘A tale of loss and hope, of strength drawn from truly inhabiting the moment.’ – Raynor Winn, bestselling author of The Salt Path
