Joan’s first book A Year by the Sea chronicled her awakening after years of being a wife and mother. Identifying with her need to listen to her heart, women flocked to her story sending it straight to the bestseller list.

Several bestsellers later and a full schedule of media tours and workshops, Joan claims that she was ”restless, unhappy, and full of an undefined ache, standing at a crossroad with no clear idea of what path to follow. I only knew that I needed a change. So I took a leap of faith, walked away from the mainstream of life and dove headlong into the unknown.”

Joan explores her Second Journey; how she was able to go deeper as opposed to father on her path. She talks about the mystical Scottish island of Iona and how she rediscovered herself all over again. Always a delight and filled with amazing insight, Joan talks about how to be true to ourselves and live fulfilled, yet unfinished lives.
