Unearthing Venus: My Search for the Woman Within

Cate Montana. Duncan Baird/Watkins, $21.95 (256p) ISBN 978-1-78028-597-9
Montana never intended to write an intimate memoir about a lifetime of exploring the uncharted territories of the feminine soul—of her soul. But when interviewing the Indian yogi Sadhguru, he unexpectedly asked her the question: "What do you know about woman?" Montana's life story unfolds in response and it's a gripping tale—a gradual spiritual reckoning rooted in childhood, but notably beginning in adulthood once she had become a successful woman. Like so many people, she longed for deeper meaning in her life, but unlike many, her determination to pursue self-discovery took her on remarkable inner and outer journeys across continents and into profound solitude. Written with candor, this insightful story touches the pain and humor of being a woman in the world. Ultimately, Montana realizes what it means to be a success as a woman, and with that, the bliss of being alive. Her story and lessons learned are personal and yet universal; she asks hard questions about the social consequences of long-denied feminine values, while passionately advocating for a higher vision of what humanity can become.
