When I was struggling over ending my marriage after recently declaring that I was an agnostic, I saw this book in a book store and sat down to look through it. I was from a southern, conservative state where agnostics or people who were not christians were looked upon with suspicion. It was a very difficult time for me and this book, literally, saved my life. This book gave me permission to ask and expect the 'something more' from life that I wasn't getting. It gave me permission to live my authentic life, to be my authentic self, and to love myself for who I was. I will be eternally grateful to Ms. Breathnach for this book. I buy copies of it all the time and give as gifts to younger women, especially if they are struggling in life. I highly recommend everyone reading this book because it is truly eye opening and is a source of peace and comfort.
This book inspired me to create a visual journal of my life so that I could get in touch with aspects of myself that somehow got buried long ago. I used to think that digging around in the past was a waste of time but now I realize how important it is to excavate parts of my identity that I should have never abandoned. What a surprise to find out that I'm the one I've been waiting to meet all along.

I am a 63-yr-old woman who has read Something More just recently. A 19-yr-old reviewer did not find the book very helpful and I can see why. You have to have LIVED to get the point of the book. Something More addresses the need and desire of mature women to get back to their authentic selves, which we left behind when we took on all the "roles" we do of marriage, motherhood, career. I agree with the author that we did indeed leave behind a good chunk of that "girl" who loved to paint, write, climb trees, sing and dance. This book is about finding her again, for she is our true self, the Something More most of us sense is missing from our lives. A great message, well written and instructive.
Loved this book. Would (and have) recommended it to plenty of women. If you are feeling a bit lost have an open heart, this book has so much wisdom. I love her references throughout history that remind us, we are not alone. Nor are we the first ones that have ever felt a longing for something more. Worth the read. I can’t wait to re-read.
