‘This is an inspiring and uplifting book about finding infinite value in the most intense and painful experience of profound loss.’

Sandie Shaw, Singer

‘A heart-wrenching and uplifting story of one woman’s tragedy, transformation and, ultimately triumph, all the more powerful because every word is true – and because Diane Esguerra is a very fine writer.’

Eddy Canfor-Dumas, Novelist, Award-winning Screenwriter

‘I could not put this gripping travel memoir down. What a refreshing change from the endless stream of ghost-written celebrity outpourings! Junkie Buddha: A Journey of Discovery in Peru is moving and enlightening. It deserves the widest possible readership.’

Julia Stephenson, Author, Journalist

‘Diane’s book takes you on both a geographical and spiritual journey to a place of healing and ultimately to a place of peace in mind and heart. For anyone going through the grief journey of losing a loved one to addiction I highly recommend this mother’s story as an opportunity to reflect on your own experiences and hopefully find a way out of the maze of emotions Diane takes us through. Ultimately, you will feel uplifted and strengthened by sharing this journey with her.’

‘Diane Esguerra’s demanding, and at times dangerous journey to Machu Picchu becomes a metaphor for her own psychological and spiritual progress. This combination, together with her undoubted skill as a writer, makes fascinating and moving reading.’

Tony Bedford, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society

‘Diane’s extraordinary journey of a lifetime is a brilliant and poetic evocation of deep loss, set in dramatic and fascinating landscapes. Unforgettable.’
