Bokara Legendre shares life's journey in 'Not What I Expected'

In "Not What I Expected" (published by Balboa Press), Bokara Legendre shares the adventures she was privileged to be a part of, from traveling with Robert Kennedy, to time in remote Borneo, from being a debutante and NY Times reporter and actress, to taking a great spiritual journey following the Dalai Lama and other great teachers.

"Not What I Expected" is a memoir of adventure and seeking, the world crossing journey of an artist and journalist. It is one of those rare documents that emerge only from hard sleuthing through old trunks in storage, file cabinets, photo albums and yellowing letters. It is also an account of a survivor of being raised during the gilded years of the first half of the 20th Century.

"It raises compelling human questions of how to find meaning, express ones gifts, be released from family history, overcoming trauma, be of service to others, and find a true home in the world," Legendre expresses.

A great read, "Not What I Expected" takes readers across the globe, from New York to Big Sur, and from Nepal to Peru, through a true story written with humor and insight. Readers will witness a life of art and adventure and spirit that many will find compelling and fun.
