A journey around the world, a quest for spiritual enlightenment and a story for anyone who has battled with divorce, depression and heartbreak.
It's 3am and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.
