Brida: Do you believe in soulmates?

A story of a young Irish girl, has long been interested in various aspects of magic but is searching for something more. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to become a witch.

“I liked it, its a light read. The pacing is not that fast. As the author Paulo Coelho dwells more on life's stories and self discoveries. You will still find this an interesting read and learn something from the story as the characters are torn into decisions on goal-setting, destiny, love, responsibility.” *** ( 3stars "I like it" ) My shelfari permalink review.

My favorite quotes from the book:
  • "Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day" - Brida's father
  • "What is now proved was once only imagined"- William Blake
  • ‘But how will I know who my Soul mate is?’ ‘By taking risks,’ Wicca 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.’
