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.

WRITE A REVIEW

A very good start to an engaging trilogy.

This book introduces you to Juliette, her family, travel and poignant insights into all three. Julliette's exuberant personality shines through on every page, allowing you laugh and cry along with her. The portioned family stories and anecdotes are the"bread and butter" of the book and I look forward to reading more in her subsequent writing.

Adventure....drama....romance....spiritual....

5

Wow!!! Thank you Juliette for taking me on your journey of adventure, drama, romance and spirituality. How incredibly talented to whisk me along on your roller coaster ride of heartbreak and despair and then to elevate me to your new found strengths and beliefs. What a woman! This is Juliette's life of raw truths, discovery and above all, grounding. I enjoyed not only Juliette's journey but also the poetic language used throughout the book. Many paragraphs I re-read in order to absorb the beauty of her words. I was reluctant to finish the book........it meant that was the end, even knowing this is book 1 of a trilogy. Once again, thank you Juliette and thank you for your commitment in writing this book. I look forward to following your journey........

Juliette's Angel Rivals Eat Pray Love & WILD

5

Contains spoilers. It's not often that a memoir moves me. After Eat Pray Love, and Cheryl Strayed's arduous hike in WILD, I thought I'd heard it all. Then comes a startling new memoir, so brutally honest, estatically funny, yet crushingly tragic, that it shook me to the core. Written in three sections: Defined by Death, Driven by Desire, Drawn to Destiny, most of this true story takes place in high altitude, trekking the magnificent Everest National Park. Juliette Power's young life changes forever, one cold misty morning when her mother vanishes out the back door. As a child of suicide, Juliette struggles all her life to stay strong. Despite homelessness and adversity, somehow she retains a sense of humor, which seems to retain her sanity and propell her through life. This memoir is not predictable. This is what appealed to me. Page after page, Juliette confounds your senses with her vivid descriptions and childlike logic. Thoughly entertained, it was difficult to guess what would happen next. The final chapter left me amazed.

"If you are looking to find hope and a little faith, Juliette's Angel: Death, Desire, Destiny is a powerful memoir by Juliette Power, and it offers a little more to those who want to believe." -- Alison Laverty, Huffington Post, 3 October 2016. Juliette's story is told in present tense and evolves at an energetic and powerful pace compelling the reader to turn the pages to see what is next to be encountered in her journey of discovery of the presence, of the past and perhaps, of eternity. Vivid use of imagery and detail in the telling of her journey enables the reader to see, hear, taste and smell all that is on offer in Nepal and the Himalayas - a land of killer storms, avalanches, valleys of glaciers, vultures, farmers hoeing their land, prayer wheels and golden Buddhas. One year later another journey is made to a different country - Iceland. Here Juliette finally finds reason to put aside any doubts in the existence of her angel in the sighting of a most remarkable event which occurs during an appearance of the elusive Aurora Borealis. It is as if Juliette has walked right though her past and has finally caught up with it and its real meaning. -- Robynne Briener "The Himalayas are a truly inspirational place...And it has proven so for Juliette. Juliette's story shows how a magical place in the world can lead to far bigger things in life." - George Hillary, grandson of Sir Edmund Hillary"If you are looking to find hope and a little faith, Juliette's Angel: Death, Desire, Destiny is a powerful memoir by Juliette Power, and it offers a little more to those who want to believe." - Huffington Post"A joyful read. If you enjoy wisdom that's grounded in humour, experience and gritty reality you will find great rewards here. I commend it to you." - Radio 4ZZZ Review
