In a village at the edge of the wilderness of Northern Russia, where the winds blow cold and the snow falls many months of the year, a stranger with piercing blue eyes presents a new father with a gift - a precious jewel on a delicate chain, intended for his young daughter. Uncertain of its meaning, the father hides the gift away, and his daughter, Vasya, grows up a wild, willful girl, to the chagrin of her family. But when mysterious forces threaten the happiness of their village, Vasya discovers that she may be the only one who can keep the darkness at bay.

As a young girl, Willow watched her mother leave their home in Washington state in a literal blaze of glory: she set the mattress of her cheating husband on fire in her driveway, roasting marshmallow peeps and hot dogs before the fire department arrived. And, with that, she and Willow set off to New Mexico, to a new life, to a world of arroyos and canyons bordering an Apache reservation. Willow was devastated. Her eccentric mother believed in this new life and set about starting a winery and goat ranch.

I like this author, since listening to ‘The Divinity of Second Chances’ and this book didn’t let me down. Inspiring and sometimes cutting too close to the bone, I didn’t want this book to end.

Come to the stage between two worlds - come to the Theater of the Imagination. On this six-part live performance series, best-selling author and beloved cantadora (keeper of the old stories), Clarissa Pinkola Estes shares the work of her lifetime: myths, tales, and poetry with the power to nourish and heal. Contained within Theater of the Imagination are the great universal themes - tales of loss and ressurection, of love and sacrifice; of the courage to survive - yet it is as if Dr. Estes is speaking only to you.

Estes is a born story teller, her voice puts you in a dream, the stories connect with your inner voice and lead you on a path that seems vaguely familiar, yet you have not before journeyed. She interprets symbols like it’s her first language and exalts the reader to parallel level of understanding to manifest the morals in the present life.
Estes is everyone’s great Aunt who draws you like a magnet to the possibilities that lay before you, if you dare to have the eyes and ears to see undisguised Spirit.
