Nell’s expat adventure began with an unexpected romantic encounter during a vacation in Chile in Fall 2006 that led her to leave her own country for the “City of Love”. But after ten years of putting on a happy face at the place where dreams come true, fate turned her plans and life upside down. The traumatic terror events in France (2015) brought a heavy karma of suffering, loss, and separation that challenged her priorities. This is a book about one woman’s response to the aftermath of those events. Unfit to her job and far from home, will she be still able to rediscover her destiny? Could depression, anxiety, and panic be nothing more than a precious treasure chest containing the true fortune hidden inside us all?
