Présentation de l'éditeur

Touted in the press as ‘Sex & the City’ meets 'Eat, Pray, Love’.

Love & the Goddess
One woman, One myth, Three Goddesses

A woman’s voyage of self discovery begins on the internet leading all the way to Brazil and onto the Andean highlands of Peru.

Summary:-
Devastated from her relationship break- up, Kate Canavan is at a loss until she re-discovers a hidden painting of the triple Goddess from Greek mythology. Her interest in mythology and spirituality is re-ignited. A voyage of self discovery begins with internet dating using the names of each of the Goddesses in the triple myth.
When a health scare intervenes Kate and her friends go together to visit a famous healer in Brazil and a spiritual guru in Peru, where all three friends begin spiritual journeys of forgiveness, gratitude and learning to live in the now. But will Kate find love?

Ferdia Mac Anna (author of cult book to movie Last of the high Kings) says:-

"Funny, informative heart-warming and wildly entertaining. This novel takes the reader on an exhilarating roller-coaster ride though modern romance, internet dating, Peruvian Gurus, wannabes, has-beens and lotharios and brings them home safe and almost sound. This book rocks!'

Kate is devastated when her husband of over 20 years tells her he wants a divorce. Her entire world is upended and she has no idea what she is going to do now.

While packing, she comes across her painting of the Goddesses, and is reminded of her one time curiosity about spiritualism.

Kate and her friends go together to visit a healer in Brazil and a spiritual guru in Peru, where all three friends begin spiritual journeys of thankfulness and learning to live in the now.

I have read a number of books on spiritualism and the mythological archetype. To me, 'Love and The Goddess' by Mary Elisabeth Coen is by far the gentlest. As Kate learns about Goddess, she also struggles with her Christian faith, and Ms Coen is able to weave a believable blend of the two for her character.

Her husband wants a divorce, add to this the fact that her daughter will be leaving home and you have a recipe for pain, loneliness and disbelief.

It is one thing to be jilted, but quite another to be tossed aside for someone half your age. Kate, like many women put her own desires and self on the back burner in order to please her husband. This makes the betrayal all the more devastating.

What you will love about Ms. Cohen character is her resilient attitude about her situation. You also come to love her best friend Ella, a down to earth woman who encourages Kate to get out there and start to experience a new life. Kate it is introduced to Internet dating and the farces begin. You will into a world that is totally relatable and sometimes disturbing. You will enjoy the humor that balances out the sadness and be inspired as Kate maters and come to grips her newfound freedom. Enjoyable reading, likable characters and inspiration. This is a book that will leave you feeling like anything is possible.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exciting Journey worth Taking. A Must Read! 14 mai 2013
Par machel - Publié sur Amazon.com

Sometimes they say there are such things as in serendipity in the world. You could say that happened to me when I found this book in my hands as a wonderful treat for me to read. I am an avid reader and read many books. So how do I rate books? I give my reviews based on what kind of experience I had while I was reading. I rate a book on how long it took me to reach the last page. And, what feeling moves through me as I read the final sentence? If I feel like a fabulous friendship has just ended, then I usually sulk about it for days to my husband. When I read books that go this distance for me, I become inspired. Why?
I read a lot and that doesn't happen every time. But it did when I read the final sentence in Love & the Goddess.

Well. Well! Well!! I don't want to compare this book to any other because it really doesn't deserve comparison. This is like one of those books you read and now you are glued to that author for life. You know, waiting for the next book to come out because there is that type of connection you felt with the book when you read it.

Kate is the main character. Kate is ditched by her husband of many years and her perfect life has just fallen out from under her. Her only child that is now off to college, is also heartbroken by Trevor's sudden decision to break up their perfect unit.
However, just like in life, when something falls apart some new wonderful things can happen.

Kate's best friend, Ella, is spirited and lively. She offers that sidekick companion for Kate that introduces her to a world of dating via Match.com type sites. She also has a friend named James that balances out the equation. I sometimes found these two side characters just as enjoyable as following Kate on her personal journey on self discovery and learning on how to start over.

There is a fun trip to Brazil and Peru that had exquisite images that register with those that love the ZEN, MEDITATIVE quest. The part of the book felt like a spiritual quest for inner peace, which Kate does not necessarily find right away. The trip isn't perfect, but what she finds more or less is herself emerging as strong and confident woman.

Upon arrival in Dublin, there are family issues to be met when her father is in the hospital. When will Kate have her moment of fun and atonement? What does happen during this period is Kate finds some unanswered questions finally answered regarding her memories with her father. She discovers a family secret that she never knew. By learning this information she is drawn closer to her father again.
I feel as if I am giving away too much here. I don't want to spoil the story. I will just say that when Kate makes it back to Ireland so many choices will need to be made when there are so many new forks in the road. And the on-line dating under the three Goddess names?? (I failed to mention that) How does that work out?

That what makes this story so much fun to read. Following Kate on her own personal discovery of who she is as a woman is also linked together with mad-cap adventures that are down right hilarious and fun. I found myself laughing and wincing along with Kate when some of these characters she met for a coffee appeared to be more like a shady character from Stephen King book. (You know, at first glance they look like they are nice and normal, but watch out! There could be a Dracula, A Carrie with telepathic powers or an alcoholic with an ax. Kate's dating escapades didn't turn up any serial killers, but sometimes you were wondering as you turned the page...of course in a fun, mild way I am speaking, not a gruesome and scary kind of way. This is after all, a fiction book that reads like a perfect movie script with beautiful scenic settings. If you could make a comparison on books. You might say Eat Pray Love crossed with Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. Coming from me, that's huge compliment. I love Elizabeth Gilbert and Sophie K books. I think that Mary Elizabeth Coen book belongs right up there on the shelf with them..and in the theaters, too.)

You could say that sometimes a book finds us. That sometimes one will find you by a twist of fate that you didn't know was just around the corner. You pick it up. You read it. And your life shifts slightly for the better. You find yourself smiling. You find yourself welling up with tears when certain marvelous moments finally do come together for the character you fall in love with in that particular book you are reading.

Yes! This happened to me with LOVE and the GODDESS. I found myself waiting for moments to read it whenever I could. I wanted to read it faster than I did. But Mother's Day weekend full of events pushed me with the final read in one sitting on a perfect, sunny moment in Cardiff by the Sea in California. The breeze was just right. My coffee tasted perfect even when I ran out of my half and half. And there was just me meeting Kate back at the end of her journey in this lovely story that conquers the most important theme of all:

Are you on the right road in your personal quest for happiness?

I look forward to reading Mary E. Coen's next book. I am sure it will deliver with a punch just like this one. A must read, especially for women that love to read about love, dating and looking within to find a deeper meaning than just a tube of red lipstick.

This is an exciting journey with taking. Ask me, I know.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Motivational. A very enjoyable read 23 avril 2013

It is a wonderful story that gives you strength and courage to start your life again when you have lost all your hopes in life and don't know what to do next. The author pulls off a remarkable story combining a blend of emotions, spiritualism and humor while inspiring the reader to face the challenges of life with hope and belief.

The story is all about the Kate Canavan, who faces a devastating divorce with her husband after 20 years of her marriage. Her daughter also leaves the home. It is a devastating shock for her as she has sacrificed almost half of her age to taking care of her family. With feelings of disbelief, loneliness and bewilderment, she does not know what will happen to her next.

During a spiritual journey of self-discovery, she meets her close friend, Ella who encourages her to meet a spiritual guru inPeru. Kate enlightens her life with a sense of spiritualism. She gets introduced to new experiences of life with Internet dating and learns to live happily. She maintains a fine balance between her Christian faith and a spirit of Goddess.

It is really a fantastic read, and serves as an inspirational guide to others. I would highly recommend it to people looking for a more positive approach to their lives.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful. This book really is great! 21 avril 2013
Par Ester Lopez - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wonderful. This book really is great! It's so difficult to come across anything new and really good in this genre.
It's a book that should be read by anyone needing to rediscover their raison d'être or simply getting empowered after a relationship breakdown. Considering the emotions the author must have gone through, this is an incredibly brave book to write - it is a healing book and presses all the right buttons for me.

Despite its emotional content, this is an easy read with humor tinged with elements of sadness. I laughed, cried and pondered while enjoying this beautiful story. After the hardships of marital betrayal, there is fun in the form of internet dating, and joy in her new friendships. The characters are very well developed and the plot develops very nicely, but truly the best thing about this book is the new life and freedom the author discovers.

I can imagine that this book also serves as a insightful self help book with the reader learning several lessons along the way to self empowerment. It serves as a fine example to surviving major difficulties we might all be facing now or in the future.

There is a sense of wonder inside this little treasure of a book, which stays with you long after you finish the final page. Not a novel to be missed.
