Synopsis:
There is a gift so simple that it requires no ribbons for wrapping, yet which is so miraculous, it has the power to transform our lives. This is The Gift of Story, a tale of love and wisdom from Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, eminent psychoanalyst and author. When an old woman flees to a hut in a lonely forest, begins Dr. Estés, she seeks safety from the savage war that has devastated her village. What sustains her is the greatest of all gifts: a story. One healing tale leads to another, creating stories that each speak eloquently to the question, What is Enough? Handed down to Dr. Estés by elders within her own foster family, these stories are born of deep suffering; each one pays tribute to the human spirit. Heart-warming and fertile with strong symbols, The Gift of Story is a seed that will bear a rich and lasting fruit within your own family. As Dr. Estés says, Though none of us will live forever, our stories can. As long as one soul remains who can tell the story ... the greater forces of love, mercy, generosity, and strength are continuously called into the world.

Book Description

Review:
In this enchanting book, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES shares several small stories that, like Matriochka dolls, fit inside one another. Taken together, they are a moving testament to the enduring legacy of stories and to the triumph of love over loss. Dr. Estes masterfully blends the bitter and the sweet, the dark and the light, despair and hope, into a wonderful gift that illuminates and strengthens, a gift that will be cherished by all who receive it.
