Every journey is about leaving home and then returning.

In her gripping memoir of love, loss, and survival, Camilla Dorand recounts the events of her life, from her childhood in Brazil to the present day.  Essentially, it is the tale of a young woman struggling to understand herself in today’s chaotic and confusing world. The themes of the tale are practically universal to all women – discovering how to navigate romances with integrity, learning to love oneself in spite of negative body image, finding meaningful and fulfilling work, and coming to terms with mother-daughter relationships. Like so many, young Camilla is pulled away from her own authentic self through the trials and tribulations that life throws at her. But with tenacity and persistence, she finds her way Back to Me.

In the drama that unfolds through her life story, readers will be taken along on a journey that includes the highest highs and lowest lows. In her relationships with men, for example, she experiences the brightest light and the darkest shadows. While her father remains a steadfast, kind, and loyal guide through her life, she is also chased by demonic thugs on the streets of Brazil, barely escaping their murderous intentions, and her romantic relationships too often devolve into abuse and neglect. Only time and maturity will bring her the taste of true love.

Through all these events, one relationship overshadows them all, however – her contentious and heart-breaking relationship with her mother. It is only through her hard-fought battle for self-love that she is finally able to understand and forgive her mother… and to understand and forgive herself.
Lao Tzu wrote, “At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are, and you know what you want.” Back to Me is the story of Camilla Dorand’s journey back to that center, and an invitation for you to do the same.
