The Goddess is coming back, says Claire Hamilton, but the one we're least familiar with lies under our feet. For long years, in her many faces, she's been buried in dry and awkward translations. Written in the first person - which gives a wonderful sense of immediacy and presence - the provocative and surprising renderings of Celtic tales in Maiden, Mother, Crone take us on a journey in which the twelve most ancient and extraordinary goddesses of the land reveal their light and dark faces. In bringing their symbolism to life for today they restore our ancient understanding of such things as life, war, sex and death. Encounter the endurance of Branwen, the wit of Rhiannon, the daring of Medbh, the magic of Ceridwen, the testing of Arianrhod, the betrayal of Deirdre and the power of the Morrigan. Share the Goddess' spiritual journey, learn from her loves, her challenges, and how she triumphs through her pain. Travel with her and be ready to receive the gifts she has to offer.
