Quest : From The Hollywood Hills to the Amazon Jungle, One Woman's Search for Enough


What happens when you realize you've been living a lie?

Emily has the life, selling what Time Magazine hails as the revolutionary new treatment for cancer. Her boyfriend's start-up gets acquired for almost half-billion dollars, and the view from their beachfront LA penthouse looks bright. Few know she's on a dangerous journey of extremes, riding an alluring threshold of risk, while languishing at hedonistic soirees. Nothing is too big, too excessive or ever enough.

And then, Emily has a shock discovery that forces her to lose everything. She finds herself scraping rock bottom, filled with regret and a desperate longing for the life she can't return to.

Enter grandfather alchemist-intuitive, James, a cross between Don Quixote and Forrest Gump, who does an MRI on her soul, revealing a body headed toward serious illness. He initiates her into an ancient paradigm, where women access a force deep within paving the way for radical personal realization.

By walking beside and sometimes a little ahead of the reader, The Quest gives a brutally honest account of love, loss, and triumph that shifts our elusive understanding of what it means to be truly alive.
