Social media and business entrepreneur Sophie Cachia reveals never-before-shared details of her marriage breakdown, and how delving into her feminine intuition and falling in love with a woman turned her whole world upside down.

I was running late, again. The sweat from under my milk-filled udders ran down my stomach and onto the post-natal recovery shorts I’d squeezed on under my leather skirt. Only eight weeks earlier, I’d birthed my second baby, and this was one of my first work appearances.

I raced into the hotel, took the lift to the wrong floor, fumbled my bag and finally landed at the entrance. I went around the circle of unfamiliar faces, smiling, shaking hands, introducing myself…

Then there was her.

As our hands touched, time froze. My whole world changed forever…

Sophie Cachia had her white picket fence life. By the age of 25, she was a mother and happily married, and had also built a very successful business by documenting her every move online.

But Sophie and her comfortable existence were thrown a curveball when she met a woman who prompted her to ask herself the questions: What more can I do? What more can I learn? What more can I be?

InThen There Was Her, Sophie describes how challenging the set social narrative for a young woman led her down a path of awareness, empowerment and acceptance as she navigated identity, sensuality and the true meaning of authenticity as a mother and a woman.

A deeply honest and inspirational memoir of a strong female who made peace with her decisions all in the unrelenting glare of the public eye,Then There Was Herencourages readers to stop fearing the unknown in life and to instead be excited about what may just come your way.

RATINGS & REVIEW

Awful
This is a very badly written memoir - not an autobiography. The timeline bounced back and forth and was confusing. There were frequent errors in grammar, syntax and punctuation. Surely it could have been edited and still retain Sophie's "voice". Content wise - it has a lot of soft porn which was disappointing. There should be a warning on the front cover about language and graphic sexual content. I was hoping to read about the evolution of the pyjama empire and Sophie's personal growth but this was more like 50 Shades of Grey.

So many life listens and thought provoking moments
This book is one of the best reads I have ever read. Once you have read it go and listen to the audiobook, it’s a whole other experience. It’s a thought provoking and moving read. Everyone should give this a read especially young people. As a mum of two boys, I will be giving them a copy of this to read and discover. I took so many things away from this book. Sophie thank you for sharing your story and life listens with us.

Awful
Smutty, boring and terribly written. How embarrassing to have this out there. We learn that Sophie's fiance was her second choice and that anyone in her life is a failure, disappointment or not to Sophie's superior level of being. Sophie also delights in revealing her sexual adventures for her children to discover down the track. Fun times!

Don’t waste your money
I was expecting at least a proof read version of Sophie’s rise to success through blogging, social media and her business endeavours. Instead I got a self indulgent, soft core piece of trash that taught me Sophie is horrible to basically all the people around her and it’s no surprise so many people don’t hang around long. How anyone of her family, ex’s, her current partner or friends are still on speaking terms with her now this is out there forever is absurd.

So bad
This is by far the worst book I have ever read. It is a monolog of Sophie's self indulgent thoughts & viewpoints blurted onto paper like stream on consciousness which completely contradict the life she has lived as described in this book. Self obsession at its finest. Also, did anyone proof read this before publication…because I see grammatical errors are throughout.
