Tout Sweet by Karen Wheeler

My favorite book has been Tout Sweet.

As a recovering corporate executive myself, I really enjoyed Karen’s tale of walking away from a job – and a life – she found unsatisfying in the hope of finding everything she wanted/felt she lacked. There is a leap of faith required in leaving money, security, prestige, comfort, and employment behind; it is not a leap everyone is willing (or able) to take. But when you can and do, it’s thrilling (and terrifying and occasionally disheartening and often unnerving and sometimes lonely and always surprising) – and reading someone else’s tale of surviving it was as well!
