Praise for Paulo Coelho:
‘An exceptional writer.' USA Today
‘His books have had a life-enhancing impact on millions of people.’ Times

‘“The Alchemist” is a beautiful book about magic, dreams and the treasures we seek elsewhere and then find on our doorstep.‘ Madonna
‘It’s like music, really, the way he writes, it’s so beautiful. It’s a gift that I envy above all others.’ Julia Roberts

From the Back Cover
'But how will I know who my soulmate is?' 'By taking risks,' she said to Brida. 'By risking failure, disappointment, disillusion, but never ceasing in your search for Love. As long as you keep looking, you will triumph in the end.'
This is the story of Brida, a beautiful young Irish girl, and her quest for knowledge. On her journey she meets a wise man who teaches her about overcoming her fears, and a woman who teaches her how to dance to the hidden music of the world. They see in her a gift, but they must let her make her own voyage of discovery.
As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to transform herself.
A moving tale of love, passion, mystery and spirituality from the master storyteller and author of The Alchemist. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description

BRIDA is the story of a young Irish woman, Brida, who wishes to learn about magic. At the very beginning of the novel, she meets a Magus from the Tradition of the Sun who teaches her about the Dark Night and who recognises that she does have a gift - he is just not completely sure what that gift is. Yet this marks the beginning of Brida's spiritual journey - to find out what her gift is and what her path shall ultimately be.
This path then leads her to Wicca, a woman who commands respect and stirs emotions within Brida that she does not always understand. Wicca takes Brida on as a student, teaching her the Tradition of the Moon.
So, BRIDA is basically the story of one woman's spiritual journey of self-discovery. Along the way she learns how to listen to the hidden music of the world and how she would be able to recognise her Soulmate. Brida also discovers that, as for anyone embarking upon a journey of self-discovery, the things that she experiences and learns have an effect upon not just her but those who are close to her. This, as Coelho tries to empart, is the nature of such a journey - once you have found the right path, to see it to the end and fulfill your destiny is not always an easy ride.
For fans of Coelho's work, BRIDA should be an enjoyable read. For those who have never encountered his work before, BRIDA may be somewhat of a disappointment. As with much of Coelho's work, the reader gets out what they are willing to put into their reading experience.Read more ›
Some people have described this book as inspiring, though, and it is easy to see why. The book puts forward interesting messages about life and love. Those with some interest in spirituality will find much to think about, and many find in Paul Coelho's books instances which reflect or explain spiritual experiences that they have had themselves - and that can inspire. Those who think they have already found their soulmate will find either confirmation or food for thought. Those who believe there is more to life than just the moment, that there is some sort of purpose to it, will undoubtedly find something here and you certainly don't need to be into Wicca or sympathetic to it's ideas (which a lot of Wiccans, it seems, feel are misrepresented here anyway).
So, approach this as stimulus material, and you are unlikely to be disappointed. Most people know something about Paul Coelho and will have an opinion about whether they will like his books, and they are usually right. For those who like this genre, this book will entertain and may inspire.
this story about Brida was a great experience for me as i am on a similar journey to the charater.
I always enjoy reading Paulo's books and couldn't put it down.
