A Hay House Release
A Fun Novel with a Great Pay-Off!
“Pushing Upward is an extraordinarily wise, well-written and entertaining book. Once I began reading it, I couldn’t put it down.
A lot of stories provide an intriguing journey to nowhere — an interesting trip but ultimately without rewards. Pushing Upward is filled with rewards. It is fascinating, informative and fun. It’s also wonderfully cinematic. I think it will appeal to a very wide swatch of readers — including aspiring actors and writers, men and women of all ages, seniors, people with eating disorders, New Agers, Baby boomers, and those who look to guide their lives from a higher source of wisdom. It’s an absolutely delightful and highly rewarding read.”
An Enjoyable Read & Challenging Journey Towards Transformation
“Adler has captured the spirit of the 70′s! She has enticed our senses by reminding us of the culture, ethics and spiritual climate of that time. In many ways, it reminds us of our present — our struggle to find our identities and what it means to make peace with our chosen paths. The heartfelt story of 21-year old Sandra who is in the autumn of her life and the 80-year old wise & strong willed friend & guide, Emma, nearing the end of hers, leaves an indelible mark that transforms them both.
I was totally engrossed in the fascinating drama of her life, her straightforwardness and humor. I’m looking forward to reading the sequel.”
An inspiring and moving story that anyone at any age can relate to
“A friend thought I might “relate” to the book, and I absolutely did. When I was 25, I moved to LA to work in Hollywood in public relations for movies. I absolutely loved how Andrea Adler wove the story of Sandra Billings with the I Ching. I also studied and worked in the healing arts for several years, so I found that it was the perfect blend of the wacky happenings in the entertainment world with the perspective and teachings from the Far East. I could completely relate to the places Sandra Billings went in Los Angeles, as well as the places she went in her mind and heart. I really believe in synchronicity, and it seems that this book fell into my hands for a specific reason. I was truly touched by the rich and raw characters she created in Sandra and her sweet relationship with Emma. I was in tears at the end.
