Conscious Reading: Downward Dog, Upward Fog

I love to read. Mostly memoirs and historical fiction, but every once in a while I need a real light, quick read to switch it up. Meryl Davids Landau's book Downward Dog, Upward Fog is just what I was looking for. It's a quick read (I finished it in two days) that follows Lorna, a 20something girl with a great job and boyfriend but who feels like her life is desperately lacking in something. Through her sister, she's introduced to the idea of spirituality, healing and yoga- all things that make her group of shallow girlfriends wrinkle their noses. Then, Lorna's sister gets into a major car accident and her whole world is turned upside down. A great summer read- check it out!
