As a child, I knew three things for sure:
I had an angel
I loved my family
My mother was about to die.
'Stay strong, ' my father said on the morning of my mother's death.
So I did.
What I didn't know was that my mother's suicide would spark a chain of events that would shadow my life. Ultimately, blind faith drove me to the ends of the earth searching for proof.
Juliette and her daughter Bonnie leave their men and jobs in Australia and fly to Kathmandu to meet a guide they found on the internet. He leads them on a trek to the top of the world. But Mount Everest is as dangerous as it is magnificent, and Juliette's world comes crashing down when she discovers she's not as strong as she thought.
Juliette confronts her grief and her own mortality before realising her destiny in the fiery, frozen wilderness of Iceland.
What if staying strong isn't the answer?
All her life, people called her a dreamer. All her life she sought heaven. All her life she threw her wishes to the sky. But they say be careful what you wish for.
Where do we go when we die?
What if you asked God that question?
What if He replied?
Provocatively funny, naIve, romantic, and distinctly Australian, Juliette's Angel is a mystical memoir grounded by heartbreak and self-realisation. A true story well told.
