“In Brida , my third novel, which I wrote just after The Alchemist , I tell the story of a young woman who dives into sorcery and her experiences with different magical traditions. I explore many themes that are dear to me, such as the Great Mother, pagan religions, and the perceptions of love.”
-- Paulo Coelho
