Eat, Pray, Love meets The Year of Magical Thinking in this powerful memoir of love, loss and taking risks from a true adventurer.

The irrepressible Mary Moody knows better than anyone the joy of breaking new ground and discovering new frontiers. She is the bestselling author of Au Revoir and Last Tango In Toulouse, and her life as a journalist, TV and radio presenter, popular gardening guru and inveterate traveller has been an inspiration to thousands of women for decades.

But when Moody loses two of the people she loves most – her beloved husband and the half sister she had only just been reunited with – her world is turned upside down. Part of her journey to recovery is her decision to boldly go where she has never been before – both in her travels as a tour guide and in her everyday life. This leads to exploring uncharted territories in Morocco and a wrenching move from her beloved mountain home and garden to make a fresh start while rediscovering her passions – travel, gardening, food, family and the joy of new adventures. A warm, heartbreakingly moving and thoroughly entertaining story of how to rebuild your life without the people who matter most.
