5.0 out of 5 stars Transforming and uplifting.
Beautifully read by the author. Healing and heartwarming stories about the forces of love, mercy, generosity and strength which are continuously called into being in the world.One tale leads to another, creating stories that each speak eloquently to the question "What is enough?" A tribute to the human spirit.

3.0 out of 5 stars A small story elegantly told
This review is for the hardcover version of the story, not the audiobook.

I am a fan of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes. Women Who Run With The Wolves: Contacting the Power of the Wild Womanis an amazing collection of stories with reflective, Jungian interpretation following them. I bought this book in expectation of similar quality but was a little disappointed...

This review is for the hardcover version of the story, not the audiobook.

I am a fan of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes. Women Who Run With The Wolves: Contacting the Power of the Wild Womanis an amazing collection of stories with reflective, Jungian interpretation following them. I bought this book in expectation of similar quality but was a little disappointed.

If I had looked carefully at the product sales description I would have seen that "A Gift of Story" is a tiny book (16.8 x 13.2 cm) with only 40 pages. Essentially it is one traditional folk story wrapped in a couple of layers of other stories about how Dr Pinkola-Estes came to hear of the story herself.

My 3-star rating is meant to reflect that this story is, in itself, "good enough" but it is a far cry from Dr Pinkola-Estes other publications. For some of her shorter stories I would more happily recommend her audiobooks The Beginner's Guide to Dream Interpretation: Uncover the Hidden Riches of Your Dreams with Jungian Analyst Clarissa Pinkola Estes or MP3 audio stories Bedtime Stories.
