The #1 New York Times bestselling follow-up to Eat, Pray, Love--an intimate and erudite celebration of love.
At the end of her memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian living in Indonesia. The couple swore eternal love, but also swore (as skittish divorce survivors) never to marry. However, providence intervened in the form of a U.S. government ultimatum: get married, or Felipe could never enter America again. Told with Gilbert's trademark humor and intelligence, this fascinating meditation on compatibility and fidelity chronicles Gilbert's complex and sometimes frightening journey into second marriage, and will enthrall the millions of readers who made Eat, Pray, Love a number one bestseller.
In this continuation of her bestselling sensation EAT, PRAY, LOVE, Elizabeth Gilbert comes to realize that finding the man of her dreams might be easier than staying married to him. Though both Gilbert and Felipe, the beau she met in Bali (the "Love" portion of her previous book), had sworn off the institute of marriage after disastrous divorces, they were actively encouraged to reconsider when Homeland Security threw Felipe out of the country. After trading vows, they each bucked against the restrictions of commitment, but eventually they discovered an unusual formula for wedded bliss. Amidst the pressure of following up a blockbuster, Gilbert proves that she does not require a grandiose quest through lush, exotic locales to evoke the pleasure and serenity of spiritual renewal.
