Macallah embarks on a spiritual journey and invites us to go along with her. There are a lot of unanswered questions in her life which she has always accepted, knowing that when the time was right, everything would be revealed. After her beloved grandfather’s death and on the night before she boards a fishing boat for a five-week trip, Macallah is given a diary. And so the adventure begins!
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
I loved the diary passages, the author cleverly writes so differently from the rest of the story that you really believe you are reading someone else’s notes. The imagery of where Macallah arrives is beautifully described; a real utopia. Using the story of a mother, daughter, and granddaughter and how each of them finds their own path, a lot of teaching is imparted. Hope–magic–joy–happiness, these are the things we strive for.
I feel this book has been written to inspire the reader to embark on their own spiritual journey, and to go in search of these things. It is very thought-provoking and uplifting.

She loves connecting with her readers through her writing and sharing relatable experiences that deeply capture the reader's emotions while also conveying important life lessons and inspiring messages. Maya's shove for writing had always endured and manifested in her songs, short stories, and diary until recently, when she gained the courage to put it out there. Her attention is drawn to issues concerning women's roles in society and the feeling of not belonging to this modern human society.
