by: Paulo Coelho

Haunted by a devastating curse, Paulo is instructed by his mysterious spiritual master to embark upon a journey to find and speak to his guardian angel in an attempt to confront and overcome his dark past. The Valkyries is a compelling account of this forty day quest into the searing heat of the Mojave Desert, where Paulo and his wife, Chris, encounter the Valkyries, warrior women who travel the desert on motorcycles spreading the word of angels. At once a modern-day adventure, a metaphysical battle with self-doubt and fear, a true story of two people striving to understand one another, and a supernatural encounter with angels, The Valkyries is ultimately a story about forgiving our past and believing in our future.
