Who goes to Scotland for two weeks with someone they met over the internet? I did and it changed my life.

At forty-three, Ninya was depressed, out of shape, and filled with crippling anxiety after addiction, cancer, and divorce had destroyed nearly everything.

One day, she received a message from a stranger. This woman offered to lead her on a self-healing trip hiking through the Scottish highlands.

It seemed like a sign—a big sister sent when she needed one most.

In this sometimes hilarious, sometimes terrifying, but always inspiring memoir, an introverted pollyanna is paired up with her polar opposite—a steamrolling, abrasive female with completely unorthodox healing methods. As they barrel through the winding one lane roads in a tiny rental car stopping to hike at breathtaking mountains and glens, an outrageous series of events forces Ninya to reclaim her power and find the strength to heal herself in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Not what I expected

Lovely memoir of a less than comfortable relationship. Part travel journal, part coming of age, part soul searching. Enjoyed the journey!

Read it in one sitting!

I loved this book and couldn't put it down! Its not a travel book, but instead, as is in the title, a woman's journey to find center. I will be happily recommending it to others.

Brave and inspiring!

Thank you so very much for sharing your story Ninya. It came to me exactly when I needed it to.

Worth the Read

The author’s personal “Odyssey” was compelling and worth the read! :). Found a “pearl” which is what I most look for in a read. It moved me:)!🎄
