The hills east of Scranton's downtown are home to one of the most eclectic and historic neighborhoods in America. Scranton's aptly named Hill Section developed over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries, from what was originally rugged terrain and dense forest to a socially diverse enclave. The area's close proximity to Scranton's commercial center and unparalleled views of the Lackawanna Valley attracted many of Scranton's wealthiest and most prominent citizens, including the city's namesake Scranton family, to build palatial mansions in a myriad of architectural styles on its many hills. Middle-class citizens soon followed suit, building smaller but equally splendid homes alongside their elite neighbors. To serve the Hill Section's growing population, civic leaders organized religious and community institutions, and local merchants developed commercial enterprises. Ultimately, the Hill Section became home to many well-known educational and medical centers, beautiful parks, and cultural establishments. In the 21st century, the Hill Section is still a thriving community that continues to preserve its heritage. Scranton's Hill Section tells the story of a distinctive neighborhood full of diverse people whose legacies are the true embodiment of American history.

Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned thirty, she went through an early-onslaught of midlife crisis. She had everything an educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want - a husband, a house, a successful career. But instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she was consumed with panic, grief, and confusion. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. In order to give herself the time and space to find out who she really was and what she really wanted, she got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world - all alone. EAT, PRAY, LOVE is the absorbing chronicle of that year. In Rome, she studied the art of pleasure; India was for the art of devotion; in Bali, she studied the art of balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence.
