Summary

Cally Magalhães’ memoir is a gripping pause-resister of an autobiography. With a novelist’s eye for descriptive detail, Cally invites us to accompany her on her astonishing journey from England to India and Estonia, and finally to São Paulo, Brazil. We join her as she follows a trail of signs and blessings to bring relief, hope, and healing to people who need help, wherever they may be - in the streets, the favelas, the prisons, or hidden under bridges. She describes in moving detail the transformational work of The Eagle Project, using psychodrama and restorative justice in Brazilian prisons. 

To listen to this book is to be inspired by the positive change one person can bring to so many individual lives - changing the world one person at a time. Cally has much to teach us about being fully present for all of life’s events and challenges. With hard-won wisdom and deep reflection, she describes a life based on faith and gratitude, encapsulated in her ringing sentence, "When you help people who have nothing, then you realise you have everything." Her memoir has lessons for us all about what it means to walk the Earth with grace and love.

Just AMAZING!

Just fantastic. This wonderful lady, friend and mum has writing a truly heart warming book. The work she does for God is just incredible. Her trust she has in him is immense. What a truly wonderful lady. An incredibly written book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading but to listen to Cally read it was amazing. You can feel what she has written, feel like you are right there with her. I cannot wait to read the second book. The next chapter of Callys life that God has planned for her. Thank you Cally, for everything xxx
