A delightful and captivating read Nov. 5 2013
By drew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a wonderful read!
"Never judge a book by it's cover" as the age old aging goes and it holds true for this book. I so happen to be a thirty-something year old guy and I found myself identifying with the emotions, life experiences and triumphs portrayed and it was a delight! Well written and the descriptive nuances had me captivated from beginning to end. Pick up a copy and I believe you will not be disappointed!

An enlightening story of forward movement, change and hope. Oct. 28 2013
By Catherine Cardinal, Ph.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having moved to LA in 1973, I resonated deeply with the main characater, Sandra. Although the elements of her journey have a timeless quality, the years in LA Sandra experiences captures the unique flavor of this town as it began to move full speed into the 'Alternative Movement'. The I Ching, amongst many other eastern traditions were taking LA by storm and those of us with a spiritual curiosity had a cornucopia of methodologies to experience. Sandra's search is one similar to myself and many of my friends at the time, including a life as an actor. Sandra's journey reminds us of the importance of having an open mind, being tenacious and always willing to show up and give our best. Letting go and moving on is the lesson, and with a little luck, great mentors appear on the way to guide us. Now, after many years as a counselor, I will recommend this book to my female clients as its lessons hold an infinite value for developing discernment and opening our hearts.

Beautiful and emotionally moving March 18 2014
By Chloe R Traicos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Absolutely loved this book which I found quite unputdownable. Andrea Adler covers the essence of the characters perfectly causing readers to immediately have an emotional connection. I found myself staying up till 3am several nights in a row reading it.
Truly truly brilliant piece.

Read it for pleasure ... digest it for wisdom and inspiration ... March 6 2014
By B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stayed up way too late night after night because I couldn't put it down. The story grabs you right from the first page and doesn't let go. I could relate to so much of what the main character Sandra Billings went through even though I'm much older and not an actress. The themes of love and loss, confidence and self-doubt, trust and mistrust ... are handled in such an engaging and entertaining way that you can't help reflecting on your own life more deeply. I especially loved the scenes where the author's evocative descriptions of the actor's process gave me a taste of what it might be like to be one. Highly recommend!

Life Affirming "I" to "We" Oct. 5 2013
By Sara Werner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to say I haven't been so positively affected by a novel and so connected to a text before. I've never had someone put words down that so accurately described what I couldn't think of how to express. Adler's first few pages hooked and haunted me in such a way that hit a bullseye directly where my life was at the moment. Accurately capturing the paralyzing panic over life becoming a tragic myth and careening out of our control to the point where identity is even affected, then waking up to the truth that it is just us that control our destinies and the strength it takes to make that realization and take a chance on changing one's life in order truly live. Like the lead Sandra Billings, I work in the entertainment industry but as a writer/director, recently having moved to Los Angeles I have begun to come across huge cross roads in my career, one particular one had me suffering a crisis of self, having opportunity presenting itself in front of me yet my soul being compromised. Like the oracle that is the I-Ching, the book came into my life and provided such guidance back to my inner strength that was exactly what I needed...long story short, I made the right decision. Thank you to Andrea Adler for writing the book and helping to wake fellow creatives up. I know it will positively impact all no matter age, gender or career, for it is a universal zeitgeist.
