Written by a cantadora (keeper of the old stories) this little book is bursting with imagery which is elegantly interlocked with loss, survival and rebirth. Centered around a war ravaged Hungarian Uncle " a wise old crow, and 'almost saint' who made up the old people" in the author's childhood. The stories are told with wonderful simplicity reminicent of the fairy stories of long ago, full of deep feeling, humour and always a profound optimism, captivating in its honesty. A book to treasure and to pass on to our children to remind them of the "magisterial life force within all things".

A set of tales that offer the listener tools to "nourish, repair and strengthen the soul" no matter what it has had to endure. These tales show that no matter what a person has encountered the road of bitterness and hatred must never be taken. Dr E's stories show us that even when we are surrounded by darkness the spirit always survives no matter what we have had to endure and it can be always transormed into something new and beautiful.
I loved hearing about her beloved uncle, What a wonderful and beautiful soul. This is one of my favourite audio books of Dr E's and as usual I would recommend it to all that follow her teachings.
