A new book from Jamie Cat Callan
BONJOUR, HAPPINESS! is the latest book from part-time Cape Codder Jamie Cat Callan, just released by Kensington Publishing in Spring 2011.
Part memoir and part self-help, the book describes the author's journeys through France and America, meeting with hundreds of women.
Her spiritual journey includes her struggles with weight and body image, accepting middle age, coping with a new marriage at age fifty, and rediscovering her French heritage.
Jamie unabashedly embraces the beauty, mystery and magic of discovering a new culture. As a middle-aged woman living in youth-obsessed America, the author searches for the French answers to the issues of aging gracefully and finding joy in her imperfect body.
She's is not as interested in finding the Fountain of Youth, as she is in finding the Fountain of Happiness. And as Dove's "Real Beauty" campaign suggests, she discovers the joys of loving her perfectly imperfect self.
Bonjour, Happiness! by Jamie Cat Callan is available from Kensington Publishing. Ask for it at local bookshops across Cape Cod.
