How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves—even if we are unsure of who we are?
The Witch of Portobello is the story of a mysterious woman named Athena, told by the many who knew her well—or hardly at all.
"People create a reality and then become the victims of that reality. Athena rebelled against that—and paid a high price."
—Heron Ryan, journalist
"Athena's great problem was that she was a woman of the twenty-second century living in the twenty-first. Did she pay a price? She certainly did. But she would have paid a still higher price if she had repressed her natural exuberance. She would have been bitter, frustrated, always saying 'I'll just sort these things out, then I'll devote myself to my dream,' always complaining 'that the conditions are never quite right'."
—Deirdre O'Neil, known as Edda
Like The Alchemist, The Witch of Portobello is the kind of story that will transform the way readers think about love, passion, joy, and sacrifice.
