One woman, one myth, three goddesses When Cookery teacher Kate Canavan’s perfect life falls apart she moves to nearby Galway City. Her friend James urges her to love and nurture herself, but mischievous Ella persuades her to dust off her unused dating skills. So Kate explores the world of on- line dating using the name of a Greek Goddess. In the midst of a mad dating frenzy, Kate has a traumatic health scare which convinces her to drop everything and go in search of a guru. First stop a famous healer's ashram in Brazil followed by a shamanic journey through Peru, where a shaman tells her how to harness the energy of the Goddess and the Divine Feminine. Kate’s journey of self discovery continues apace after she returns home and events unfold in a surprising manner, as she learns to think for herself.

I'm so excited to share my thoughts with all of you about this book.  But first off I want to tell you how much I love this cover.  It's one that on the shelf in a store would catch my attention mainly because of the color.  I love the font and the other little detail on it.  Plus the tagline well let's just say it caught my attention and I knew I had to read this book. 

With that being said let's talk about the book itself.  Love & the Goddess, is one that pulled me in and kept me there till the very last page.  It is a book kind of like Eat Pray Love, yes I said like because I loved the plot of this one a whole lot more. This plot line has more detail and thoughts into it than Eat Pray Love does, so that is why I said like.  Love & the Goddess is a story about a woman's journey to finding herself.  It is chalk full of great characters, ones that I connected with and loved.  I would have liked to see Kate's feelings more in some situations but other than that this book is fantastic.  

Reading through this book is a journey in itself, as you go through each thing with Kate and you can picture everything she sees.  It's more like a movie than a book really.  I love books like this one because you can almost touch everything she touches and see's exactly what she sees.  Mary Elizabeth Coen, does a fantastic job with this.  Her writing style flows right along with the plot along with her descriptions and you have a perfect book that draws you in and doesn't let you go. 

I would recommend this book to any book lover, especially the ones that love Eat, Pray, Love.  

I would give Love & the Goddess a Ali's Bookshelf...
