"Bristles with illustrative anecdotes... A Welcome addition...for its inspiring message." -- Intuition Magazine

"Carol has her finger on the pulse of the current revolution." -- James Redfield, author of The Celestine Prophecy


From Booklist, March 1, 1998
Adrienne has made her reputation penning workbooks based upon James Redfield's popular Celestine Prophecy. In an easy, approachable tone, she now shares her own philosophy and life story. Gentle goodwill and ebullient optimism practically pour from every page, and her message is appealing. Who can resist her conviction that we all can find happiness and love, if not necessarily wealth and power (but maybe those, too), by just living the life we were intended to live? Adrienne is an energetic and authoritative storyteller who crafts wise parables from the life stories of those who, like her, have made a better life for themselves by positive thinking, paying close attention to intuition, and being attuned to a higher calling. She doesn't entirely avoid the shadow side of her subject, for she reminds us that a life's purpose is likely to include challenge and even suffering, but the sheer enthusiasm of her beliefs makes even the downside seem upbeat.
