Hilarious, inspiring, and thoroughly authentic, Sara E. Braca's debut memoir takes readers along on her post-divorce adventures around the world, sharing a life lived fully - if untraditionally - and proving that joy can always be found in unexpected places.
When the church burned down a week before her wedding, Sara Braca somehow did not perceive this as an omen. Six years after marrying (in a different church), an errant call from 1-800-Flowers alerted her to her then-husband's affair. And as one unhappy chapter ended, she found herself writing a very different, much happier story.
An aspiring globe-trotter, Braca realized this was her opportunity to see the world. Solo travel became her first step to finding happiness, strength, and peace in her new life. From disastrous celebrity encounters to getting naked with colleagues at the Dead Sea to being adopted by a family of Greek hoteliers, Braca blends the everyday and the outrageous as she learns that there's no one-size-fits-all model for a happy life.
When the Church Burns Down, Cancel the Wedding introduces a vibrant new voice, chronicling the triumphs, tragedies, and unexpected joys of modern solo living, and offers lessons in creating a unique and satisfying happily-ever-after of one's own.
