It is 2016 and washed-up life-coach, Mireille Parker, aged 37, is grounded at home in Perth, West Australia, the most isolated city in the world. She can’t date or travel, she can’t escape! For the first time in her life she just has to BE. HERE. NOW. What follows is the best year of her life. But first, there is work to do.
How do you create joy on limited funds? How do you stay in the present when you feel that life was so much better before? Writing herself back into being is something she can do. Through her relationships, breast cancer and journal entries we receive true insight.
From Matthias the hot Swiss guy she meets at 28 to Philippe the MMA fighter, a week out of her marriage. From Bahir, the psychedelic ingesting Syrian business owner, to George, the corporate dad. From her high-school crush on Tinder to a narcissistic university lecturer and, finally, the Parisian jewellery designer and graffiti artist she meets on Gili Air, leading to her greatest breakthrough of all in Bangkok. Love Queen : The Making of a Master is the true story of the transformative power of relationships and what we can learn along the way to create happiness and health in life and love.
It is 2007 and Sarah Price from Perth, Australia, hasn’t had a decent conversation since leaving university five years ago. She is slowly turning to stone when she meets Oliver, a hot Swiss guy who speaks of history and politics, goes to a creativity seminar where she is the youngest by fifty years and has an epiphany while watching the Oprah Winfrey e-special home alone on a Saturday night. But will it be enough this time?
We meet her in Lucerne, Switzerland, a year later, about to embark on an actual adventure. But what happens when you go overseas for this amazing cultural experience and you are the same person? How do you have your Eat, Pray, Love when you’ve been ingesting the souvenir chocolate and the only one you’ve met is a Tony Robbins loving body-builder?
As Sarah’s European transformation crumbles, will she call Oliver? Who doesn’t even know she’s there! And who is this beautiful artist, Bonnie? Will they be able to save her from herself? Or is that not the real plan?
