WITCH OF PORTOBELLO Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho is back with a riveting new novel set in London. This is the story of Athena, a woman with mysterious beginnings who has been dubbed ?the Witch of Portobello? for her seeming powers of prophecy. She disappears dramatically, leaving those who knew her to solve the mystery of her life and abrupt departure. Her story reveals much about the awakening of the female energy in both men and women. Defending the idea that God is the Great Mother, Coelho addresses delicate issues such as prejudice, religious intolerance and dogma, and weaves in some wonderfully thought-provoking ideas on spirituality, relationships, destiny and freedom.
