Collar to Cleavage
The Emotional and Spiritual Journey of an Exotic Welsh Life
Collar to Cleavage is a compelling read, a book that invites the reader to share a series of interweaving ‘life’ journeys. From a childhood in Wales to an adulthood of international proportions; from one country to another – visiting, putting down roots, some in exotic, far-flung places, some in places where you would not want to live by choice. Then to a personal journey which explores the motives and struggles of the human heart. It deals with life transitions both spiritual and emotional; it challenges readers to examine how we process not only the joys but the difficulties and surprises that life has in store.
This humorous and autobiographical account will resonate with everyone in some way. Readers are invited to reflect on their own issues in a wonderfully charming and light-hearted way and are introduced to larger-than-life characters from Swansea to Sumatra, from enigmatic Japan to a chicken factory in New Zealand. The book gives an intimate insight into the cultures of the Middle and Far East, especially the role of women.
The author’s zest for life in all its fullness is infectious. She deals with the past – the aching loneliness of a marriage, her life as a corporate wife, the shock of a cross-cultural adoption and exploring a life as a priest; we find that in her honesty we are able to understand ourselves better. Change is inevitable, life changes happen. The book is a tale of her life, but it may also be used as the basis for deeper thoughts and discussions on the appropriate sections. Collar to Cleavage will appeal mainly to female readers of autobiographies.
