What are People Saying About “Your Quest for Home?”

Book LaunchI am very proud of my book, which should go without saying. But the author’s own endorsement isn’t generally what convinces new customers to buy a guidebook like mine. I thought it might be a good idea to share some of the things readers were saying on Amazon.

In case you don’t already know, Your Quest for Home is a guidebook designed to help you determine your needs for community living and set you up with the tools to make it happen in your own life. It is intended to make you think not only about the kind of community you want but what makes you a good community member as well.

Here are some of the things people are saying about Your Quest for Home.

An anonymous Amazon user starts by saying, “This interactive book really does nudge.”

Marianne definitely earns her nickname “The Grand Nudge” with this book/guide. Even though I was familiar with many of the topics, her organization and requests for commitment and action nudged me into clarifying both my concerns and my next steps. If you have ANY wish to live in a more connected community, get this book.

I read parts of the book to the couple with whom we plan to share our home/property. They agreed, and we have planned more joint activities to be sure we are ready to make the move. If you feel frustrated or stuck, Marianne will help.

Wanda Marie says: “Your happily ever after is just a book away!”

I’ve lived with others in the past and it’s been a pleasant experience because we had agreed to certain rules and guidelines in advance. This book takes living together and designing community to a whole new level. Marianne is an extraordinary teacher, coach, consultant and her book reveals her passion for helping people learn to live in harmony. I highly recommend this book for anyone thinking of living with others, even if it’s just one other person. The book helps you to better know yourself so you can establish healthy boundaries and live the life you were meant to live, the happy ever after! I love yu Marianne, and thanks for continuing to share your gifts with the world.

And lastly, RoseGarden calls it a great resource.

Marianne’s book covers the whole subject of Living In Community on so many levels. What is Community, exactly? How do we get it, and why do we want and need it? What do we do now to ensure security and companionship in our later years? How do we begin to search for others who share our dream? This book offers step-by-step instructions and advice, and guides us on the journey as we dig deep into ourselves to discover and manifest how we want our lives to be. Marianne’s many years of experience in the field clearly contributed to the completeness of this book — it really answers all the questions and asks a few more that I hadn’t even considered. And her “Grand Nudge” persona makes it enjoyable and entertaining as well.
