About the Book

Majesteria is an inspirational story about one woman’s transformation through the seven years of menopause. It’s a story about mental breakdown and recovery, about finding new purpose and falling in love. It’s about horses, and sisters, and women’s love for one another. An honest and touching spiritual memoir from one of the first female vicars in the Church of England, Majesteria offers guidance and reflections on how one woman negotiated the change of life. It’s a rollercoaster ride that takes Melanie from England to Wales to Scotland. Eventually she and her husband leave everything behind to live nine months in a motorhome in search of freedom. Wherever you are on your life’s journey, and whatever your spiritual background, this is a hope filled book to energize and invigorate.

About the Author

Dr. Melanie Santorini has experienced mystical visions since childhood. Educated at the University of Oxford, she taught English, American and Canadian literature before leaving academia behind to follow a religious calling. A pioneer and advocate of radical change in the church, Melanie was the first vicar in England to require maternity leave, and made newspaper headlines as the first vicar to give birth in a Vicarage. Ten years later, a violent assault led to a diagnosis of PTSD, and the Reverend Doctor Melanie left her life in the church to seek recovery in rural Wales. Mother of four, step-mother to four, and recently a grandmother, Melanie now lives in the Highlands of Scotland with her husband, Peter. She devotes her time to writing, welcoming guests to Sadhana Bothy Retreat, and growing her online business, the Majesteria Academy for Midlife Women.
