Amanda always had a thirst for adventure. Perhaps it stemmed from growing up without electricity and running water, in the middle of a natural wonderland. Along came Cocoa, her family’s new dog, and the two became the best of friends as they shared a love of the wild surroundings. But Amanda felt like there was something missing, something “more” she had to discover, and gets the push necessary to find it in the previously traveled land of Australia. When she unexpectedly falls in love there, her world is filled with excitement, newness, and even more adventure until the challenges from being away from her favorite companion and their magical world becomes too much to bear.
A spiritual memoir, a love story, a lesson in perspective and hindsight, this novel chronicles the “more” Amanda had been searching for - the very thread weaving it all together being the one she thought she left behind.
