Godzone is a book of mystery and illumination, a guide-book to the travels of the heart. With humour, story-telling and captivating originality, it entices the reader to join its hitchhiking author on the most important journey of all.
'None of us has precisely the same path to follow, and yet all of us are summoned to follow a path . . . For many of us, the understanding emerges clearly in mid-life, at the very time when we suspect it is too late for us to do anything about it. Our soul knows better; it is simply time to wake up.' This inspiring and challenging book is for anyone who has ever asked, 'What now?' or 'What will be left of my life when I'm gone?' Storyteller and writer Mike Riddell brilliantly identifies the malaise that is particularly common in midlife and shows us how to make it a time for refocusing on what really matters. In an engrossing blend of reflection and story, he encourages us to regain our capacity for wonder and to discover the unique gift that only we can bring to the world.
