An accomplished entrepreneur, Coen-Fernandez combines her love of massage and storytelling into a collection of global massage memories. Through excerpts of letters and emails she turns the sad loss of her friend into an uplifting, hopeful read.

Travel with her from Asia to Africa and find yourself as captivated as an English teacher in Africa - "I've laughed out loud, scowled at things that were not good for you, drawn in my breath at your determination and conviction, winced at descriptions that were so vivid that I could see and smell them and wanted to shy away from the imagery, and wept at the stories of such courageous lives being lived - including yours and Britt's.
Your book is going to be loved and hated. It is not boring and will be a controversial piece of reading that will keep the reader on their toes between all their own "eeeuuws" and "aawwws". I couldn't tear myself away from reading for long enough. My bath water is cold, my coffee is cold, my neck is aching from being bent to read and my heart is full of questions. I realise you are a very worldly person who knows, accepts or endures all kinds of people and situations. What an extraordinary life you have lived to date. I know I'm supposed to give you critique but I can't find anything TO critique as I was captivated and beyond reading anything critically."
