Junkie Buddha : A Journey of Discovery in Peru (Paperback) (Diane Esguerra)
about this item
This is the story of one woman’s journey from her son’s revelation that he had been sexually abused in childhood through to the scattering of his ashes at Machu Picchu in Peru. Sacha had died of a ****** overdose. A journal Diane kept while traveling around Peru and her experiences, encounters and reflections form the basis of her gut-wrenching and gripping book that reconnected her to life. Time and again in Peru, a place, event or a person reminded her of her son and the rollercoaster-white-knuckle-ride they had been on together, and these experiences are meaningfully and beautifully woven into this moving and uplifting narrative. Diane once asked “Why me?” and now asks “Why not me?”—a shift that now underlines her healing.
