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 fears, 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, naïve, romantic, and distinctly Australian, Juliette’s Angel is a mystical memoir grounded by heartbreak and self-realisation. A true story well told.
“The Himalayas are a truly inspirational place…
And it has proven so for Juliette.
Juliette’s story shows us how a magical place in the world can lead to
far bigger things in life.”
-George Hillary, grandson of Sir Edmund Hillary, 2017
"If you are a woman, if you have lost someone, if you have maternal hurt to heal, you need to read this absolute treasure of a book. Juliette Power, thank you so so much. I don't have the words. Just gratitude and tears. I'm gonna get this for my girlfriends. Read the back page."

If you devoured Eat Pray Love, cheered on Cheryl Strayed in WILD, or laughed at Bridget Jones's Diary, you will love Juliette's Angel.
Thoroughly enjoyed the journey of Juliette's various life stages . Enjoyed her language, contrasting images of fuchsia nail polish and backpacks , links to movies and reflection of her loving childhood . Wanted to learn more about her proud mother and her early childhood . Enjoyed the honest between Bonnie and Juliette and got vicarious enjoyment from her relationship with Johnny .
Only criticism was her tendency to entice the reader to keep going - almost like, but "wait - it gets better". I didn't feel that was necessary as the story was engaging without that . Looking forward to the next book.
