Journey of the Groovy Goddess by Lacey Dawn Jackson begins with a visit from the police in search of her ex-boyfriend, the questions posed by them reminding her of the sad days she would like to leave behind, which triggers the reminiscences about her good old days instead. Growing up with parents and grandparents in the countryside, the adventures, the fun, the eruption of a neighboring volcano, the fear of lava flow, and how the parents arrive home covered with ash make engaging reading. Then came her foray into drugs, marijuana and the fast life, moving in with the first man to enter her life, separation, anther man, childbirth, violence, divorce, contacts with Narcotic Anonymous, a little more serious affair, further childbirth and so on, making me wonder, ‘Shouldn't there be a limit to one’s experience?’

Journey of the Groovy Goddess by Lacey Dawn Jackson is a book I couldn't put down. It is so full of experiences (say life) evoking a relentless flow of emotions that I had to read it again to see whether it is written well, cohesively, with clarity. And it is! An honest portrayal of one's life and charitable references, even to adversarial events and occurrences, make this book stand out. It has the potential to prod others into evaluating their own experiences. I have a complaint though; there is no clear mention of the author’s journey from a victim to a healer, the exceptional intelligence and other personal traits in this book, except perhaps Einstein’s appearance in a dream.
