One Reason to Live - One Woman’s Journey to Europe and the Healing Power of Animal Companionship
Christine Rose released her memoir, “One Reason to Live” on April 15, 2023. The book has been receiving high praises from readers and critics alike, including a five-star review from Manhattan Book Review.
Follow the story of a woman who becomes nomadic, traveling to different countries and pet-sitting in exchange for lodging.
In "One Reason to Live," the author recounts how she coped with the end of a 15-year marriage and multiple sexual assaults. Struggling with C-PTSD and grief, Christine must come to terms with her life's reality and find at least one reason to keep living. On a whim, she writes "Reasons to Live" on a scrap of paper, but the paper remains blank for days. Then, she remembers her old dream: moving to Europe.
Christine’s story embodies a visceral experience of living with psychiatric injury, combined with the power of radical acceptance. She finds solace in the companionship of animals, battles her demons, and learns to embrace self-love. Against a backdrop of fur-filled adventures and cultural revelations, the woman rebuilds her identity and her life.
It is a powerful and inspiring story that will touch the hearts of many.
"One Reason to Live" is a must-read for anyone who has ever struggled with mental health or experienced trauma. It is a powerful reminder that healing is possible, and that sometimes, the journey itself is the destination.
