Committed Undone by Elizabeth Lowrie will be published on Monday 6 April at $29.99pbk and $16.99e. Published by Good Karma Books, available to bookstores at 50% discount via IngramSpark and Lightning Source and their distributors.
Elizabeth Lowrie’s story of love and love lost, retirement, travel and spiritual healing deals with Lowrie’s deep shock in the wake of the global publicity campaign for Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert. Elizabeth Lowrie is the first wife of José Nunes (AKA Filipe in Gilberts’ books) and Committed Undone is Lowrie’s attempt to make known her truth. Media interest is high with Australian Women’s Weekly running an interview and photoshoot in their March edition and more media to follow.
Be sure to order copies as Elizabeth is the only person selling hard copies retail from her website dreamwithinsight.com.au.
