When tragedy touched Julia Ogilvy's life, she found herself reassessing the way she lived. Married into a life of privilege - her wedding was attended by the Queen and Princess of Wales - and recently acclaimed Business Woman of the Year, she took the decision to leave her career to found a charity. Her story provides a powerful example of how a successful and glamorous life does not always bring peace - and how her new role gives her the fulfilment she sought.
^^Julia's turning point was the death of baby Cameron, and after telling her story she charts the journeys of others whose lives have been similarly changed, from Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Bob Geldof to a young carer in an impoverished inner city environment. This book will provide inspiration to anyone disillusioned by the empty materialism of society.^
-Publisher.



A high-flying businesswoman and award-winning entrepreneur, Julia Ogilvy lived a superficially glamorous life. Ambitious and determined, her drive to succeed took its toll - when like some many women - she started to struggle to balance the demands of her job and young family. When tragedy touched her life, she chose to leave her successful business career behind to transform the lives of others by founding a charity. She found herself questioning her values and asking what really matters in life - it was a decisive turning point. In this book, she explores the turning points of ten people through original interviews. For some it's a lightning strike, for others a gradual process. For some it happens in the privileged echelons of society, for others in the depths of war or genocide. But each inspirational story reveals the resilience of the human spirit in the face of difficulty, and the power of hope to transform the world.
