Join us on an enchanting, unique, and often hilarious journey to exotic places around the world (half madcap Amazing Race through 12 countries, half lazy, lavender-filled South France.) Just as they did with their national bestseller, Come Back: A Mother and Daughter's Journey Through Hell and Back, readers are laughing, crying and gleaning lessons for their own lives. Come along on a remarkable, life-changing adventure as we gain new insights about each other, mothers and daughters globally, and how a woman of any age can live a more intentional, authentic and meaningful life.

More on their amazing journey.

An unflinching true account of a teenage girl’s dizzying descent into drugs and self-destruction and a mother’s desperate attempts to bring her back. Riveting, alternately heart-wrenching and hilarious, Come Back is ultimately a testament to our power to transform ourselves and a raw and moving portrayal of the primal bond between mother and daughter that will resonate with readers long after they’ve put it down.
