Waking Up In Paris
“As if waking up from a nightmare, I thought, If I am going to be traumatized, I might as well be traumatized in Paris, right?”
These words set the scene for dear friend Sonia Choquette’s latest book, Waking up in Paris. I was so honoured to be invited to create with Sonia the cover image of this beautiful book that will touch many people’s hearts, particularly those who have recently had their heart broken.
This weekend I had the chance to curl up with this book and read it and go on Sonia’s journey from darkness to light in Paris.
After a 32-year marriage ended and on the verge of a nervous breakdown, beautiful Sonia was given a choice by her spirited daughter Sabrina (who I love) and that was to have a breakdown in a hospital in Chicago or get on a flight to Paris to start a new life with her.
Sonia is known as one of the great spiritual teachers of our time, having published 25 books on intuition and spirituality and had numerous New York Times bestsellers but in her honest book, she shares her heartbreak and sadness just as painful as it is for any of us going through loss.
There are many surprises awaiting Sonia in Paris and as I too have called this city home I adored reading of all her mishaps, adventures, awakenings and laughter in the corners of Paris I know so well.
If you would like to mend a broken heart and go on an adventure you will probably love this beautiful read. You can find it HERE.
