A moving, warm, very funny graphic memoir of Simone Lia's search for inner peace and a husband, traveling from London to a Welsh convent to the Australian outback

As Simone Lia's book opens we find her in Leicester Square. She's just been dumped by her boyfriend and she's talking to God, telling Him that she's nearly 34 and if He wants her to get married, He'd better get a move on. Amazingly, God sends a reply, prompting Simone to plan an "Adventure with God" that starts with a stay in a nunnery, then takes her to Australia in search of a hermit. The one she finds proves a disappointment, unlike Brett, the handsome horseman who takes her riding. She thinks he looks just like Crocodile Dundee; he thinks she looks just like Penelope Cruz. Is this the man she's been searching for, or is God making fun of her? Funny, touching, and even occasionally profound, this book will be essential reading for singletons, seekers of enlightenment, and lovers of the very best graphic novels.
