Review: Love & the Goddess – Mary Elizabeth Coen

ImagePublisher: GoddessMECA; 1 edition (30 Jan 2013)

Kate Canavan’s life falls apart when her husband tells her that he wants a divorce. Kate’s friend, Ella, encourages her to give on-line dating a go but after a serious health scare, Kate decides to visit a spiritual healer in South America to turn her life around.

In my opinion this book has similarities to “Eat Pray Love”, a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and if I am honest I loved Love & the Goddess even more. I felt that there was a lot more content and storyline to Love & the Goddess than there was in Eat Pray Love.

Mary creates such an interesting journey for her main character Kate. Almost all of the time I felt as if I was a part of Kate. Although I didn’t fully agree or believe in the things the guru in Brazil does, I loved the spiritual base of the book.

I really enjoyed the way the online-dating fiasco was described. Some of these “dates” were hilariously described and set the perfect mood for the beginning of Kate’s self discovery.

The fact, that the author used different names of different goddesses to describe Kate’s journey to self-discovery added hugely to the storyline.

I loved, loved, loved this book. It is amazing and truly inspiring! I cannot wait for more of Mary’s books.

I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

My rating: 5 out of 5
