This book is by Katherine Center. I met her last fall at Lucky Star Art Camp. At camp I bought her book The Lost Husband and I loved it. So, I wanted to read this new book too. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint! I stayed up late reading it two nights in a row and finished it the next day. I got it on Sunday afternoon and finished it by Monday at lunch! I love the way Katherine writes - you can really imagine what is happening in the book and you really connect with the characters. This book did make me misty eyed a few times.
So, here is a bit about the book. The main character is Hellen, and she is 32 and recently divorced. She decides to participate in a wilderness survival course in hopes that it will help her change her life. While she goes looking for certain changes/has certain ideas of how this course will help her - it ends up helping her/changing her in different ways.
I cannot recommend this book enough - if you are looking for something good to read go check it out. Check out this link for more info/to buy the book: Happiness for Beginners
