Successful. Good looking. spoiled by life. At 28, Silvie really has everything she could wish for - and now she's getting an incredible job offer! But the dream job turns into a nightmare that pulls the rug out from under her feet. Deeply unsettled, she wonders what is wrong with her. Why can't she be thankful and happy? When she tries so hard to do everything right?

In search of answers she meets the turtle ISAYA. Isaya is 134 years old, cheeky, deeply relaxed and experienced in life. She "coaches" Silvie on her stormy journey to herself and shows her to see the world through different eyes - through ISAYA's eyes. In this way, Silvie learns to understand the deep wisdom and the true beauty of life - and ultimately to find THIS in herself what really makes her happy.

"Isaya's Eyes" was written for all those who feel the longing to turn over a new leaf, sometimes question themselves about the meaning of life - or are simply looking for a wonderful story with a feel-good factor.
