As a child, I knew three things for sure:
I had an angel
I loved my family
My mother was about to die.
‘Stay strong,’ my father said on the morning of my mother’s death.
So I did.
What I didn’t know was that my mother’s suicide would spark a chain of events that would shadow my life. Ultimately, blind faith drove me to the ends of the earth searching for proof.
Juliette and her daughter Bonnie leave their men and jobs in Australia and fly to Kathmandu to meet a guide they found on the internet. He leads them on a trek to the top of the world. But Everest is as dangerous as it is magnificent, and Juliette’s world comes crashing down when she discovers she’s not as strong as she thought.
Where do we go when we die?
What if you asked God that question?
What if He replied?
Provocatively funny, naïve, romantic and distinctly Australian, Juliette’s Angel is a mystical memoir grounded by heartbreak and self-realisation. A true story well told.
