Wonderful personal odyssey
This book is an amazing, honest journey into one woman's quest to find balance and sense in her life when she finds herself single after forty. Her searching takes her literally all over the map, to many exotic places, and into the deep realms of her own heart. The book is written so honestly, and with so much insight, that I felt like I was the writer's best friend, both wishing I had her life, and glad that I don't. Should resonate with so many women.

Good enough to be a best buy
I have read all of what Laura Fraser has written, including, of course, All Over the Map, and have become a fan. It isn't often one finds her combination of impeccable style, close understanding of human nature, interest in the world around her and tongue-in-cheek humor. All Over the Map is her best work yet. I look forward to anything else she wants to write.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
La Bella Vita Continua...with Laura's latest fabulous adventure "All Over the Map"!
Laura's first memoir "An Italian Affair" left me longing for MORE.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
More travel, more romance & more comic, heart wrenching, honest tales of a girl finding herself as she moves around the globe in search of love & living life to the max.
"All Over the Map" delivers that & so much MORE!
If you are searching for a summer read that combines witty tales ranging from cleansing your life starting with the closet, some meditation madness on way, mixed in with long distance love affair with a sexy Frenchman and ends with inspiring adventure of maybe (no spoilers here!) buying a very old, very narrow, very dilapidated house in artsy village of San Miguel de Allende with so much truth & raw emotion woven into each chapter than this IS the book for you!
Laura's writing is so easy to relate to & I kept thinking "Oh, that happened to me".
Laura is from San Francisco, like me, loves to travel, like me, can be impetuous at times, like me, passionate, like me, quirky, like me & funny, like me.
Only funnier. And way more willing to put it out there in print!
This book is impossible to put down & be forewarned:
"All Over the Map" may cost $20 but you will be inspired to eat, love, travel so get the credit card & sense of adventure saddled up before you dive into page 1!
Good lit travels fast, Great lit never stops!
All Over My Heart!
Laura Fraser's All Over The Map is a funny, witty, sometimes sad but honest review of her life and times. It could be a story about MY life, well, except for the world travel,college and the adventurous Mom! But her trials and tribulations with men and relationships struck a chord with me. Been there, done that. Her insight into the relationships, the whys and wherefores of them, is deeply introspective, completely personal, yet makes you feel you're on the journey with her. Her fears, insecurities, lack of self-esteem...all are part of who we are as women. She just boils it all down to what we all don't want to admit. That we aren't perfect and neither are men. But "la bella vita"! Life is beautiful, and each thing that happens to us, good or bad, makes our lives what they are. What we'll reflect back on in later years. As she says..."The love in your life adds up". So, tuck in your jewelry, hold your passport and money close and act like you know where you're going. You'll get there!Was this review helpful?
