This is the story of Brida, a young Irish girl, and her quest for knowledge. She has long been interested in various aspects of magic but is searching for something more. Her search leads her to people of great wisdom, who begin to teach Brida about the spiritual world. She meets a wise man who dwells in a forest, who teaches her about overcoming her fears and trusting in the goodness of the world; and a woman who teaches her how to dance to the music of the world, and how to pray to the moon. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to become a witch. This enthralling novel incorporates themes that fans of Paulo Coelho will recognize and treasure—it is a tale of love, passion, mystery, and spirituality from the master storyteller.

This book definitely was not what I was expecting. I don’t really know what exactly I was expecting when I started to read Brida, but I for sure wasn’t expecting it to have a heavy religious and spiritual theme. I don’t even know if I can write a proper review about this book, because I think it can affect every individual in different ways. I think that what I took from this story, is not what you would take from it. I will say one thing for certain, it does get you thinking. I’m sorry this review cannot be more detailed, but I don’t think anything I would say would do this book justice. I would definitely recommend this book if you are someone who likes to read about different perspectives on God and reincarnation.
