Publisher's Summary

At 24, Philippa Moore is overweight, unhappily married, and still living in her hometown of Hobart, Tasmania. After a wake-up call in a department-store changing room, Phil suddenly realises that she is on the wrong path. With determination she starts to shed the kilos and makes a confronting discovery: She is in charge of her own life.
Starting over again in Melbourne, she launches an award-winning health and fitness blog, Skinny Latte, and finds the courage to leave her marriage. She then sets out on an international odyssey, travelling the length and breadth of North America and throwing herself into every new experience she encounters.
An intuitive friend predicts that true love is in her future, but, still scarred from her failed relationship, she can scarcely bring herself to believe it. When she arrives in London, though, she finds the life she has always been looking for, coming to realise that excuses for not doing the things you dream of doing are just that: excuses.
The Latte Years is the brave story of a life restarted, of the battles still to be won once the 'after' photo has been taken. Told with humour, insight and a great deal of coffee, it shows that we have the power to change anything and inspires us to live our best, most authentic life.
Philippa Moore is a writer, editor and award-winning blogger who has held a lifelong fascination with language and stories. Her writing has been published widely, and she also hosts a popular podcast, Book Ends, featuring interviews with leading contemporary writers. She was the author of the award-winning health and fitness blog Skinny Latte Strikes Back, which was one of the UK's most popular health and fitness blogs. Philippa now lives in North London with her husband, Tom, and many pairs of running shoes.

so inspiring, a non-stop rollercoaster ride!

A wonderfully open and honest diary of a small town girl who put herself out in the big wide world and lived her life to the fullest, for better or for worse. I'm proud to know you Philippa, and wish you every success in your future Xx
