About the Author:

Paulo Coelho, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, is one of the bestselling and most influential authors in the world. The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries, Brida, Veronika Decides to Die, Eleven Minutes, The Zahir, The Witch of Portobello, The Winner Stands Alone, Aleph, Manuscript Found in Accra, and Adultery, among others, have sold over 175 million copies worldwide, and The Alchemist has been on the New York Times bestseller list for over 360 weeks.

Paulo Coelho has been a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters since 2002, and in 2007, he was appointed United Nations Messenger of Peace. He is also the most followed author on social media.

From Booklist:

Written prior to The Alchemist (1993) and recently published in English, Coelho’s novel tells the story of young Irishwoman Brida O’Fern and her search for spiritual destiny. Brida consults a famous seer, and while seeking initiation into an ancient Wiccan ritual, she discovers her supernatural gifts. Brida struggles with her growing attraction to the seer and her destiny as a witch. Emond reads in a straightforward manner, using no Irish accents, despite the protagonist’s heritage. She deepens her pitch slightly to represent the male characters. Even when she is describing Wiccan rites and ceremonies, her narration is calm and introspective. Nevertheless, Emond’s low-key reading easily represents the searching, confused protagonist. For audio collections where previous Coelho novels are popular. --Laurie Hartshorn
