Amazon has struck again. I was looking for a new book to read after “The Sitar” disappointment. I figured mixing my love for all things lesbian and biographies would be a no brainer.
I read the synopsis on Amazon and I was sold. It took me a lot longer to finish it than I thought, but I finally did while soaking up the Dominican rays of Puerto Plata.
Plot Snapshot: After a childhood trauma, the loss of love and the lack of professional traction, Kat traveled to the beaches of Hawaii to find herself.
This is a book I am glad I committed to finish. I saw a bit of myself in her story and a bit of my friends as well. Personally it served as a cautionary tale about lesbian relationships when property is involved o_O. There were definitely compelling parts that kept me reading. This is just one of those books that I would have liked a bit shorter.
Toward the end it gets a little “self-helpish” for my taste. I know it was a story of rebirth and renewal so it should have been expected but I am not a Wayne Dyer… Oprah’s Super Sunday kind of person so those portions didn’t move me. I am sure there are a lot of people that would get more from this book than I did.
Anyone read it? Love to hear your thoughts.
