Description


Una novela sobre la sorprendente historia de Brida O'Fern, una de las mas jovenes maestras en la Tradicion de las Hechiceras, donde la magia habla todas las lenguas del corazon del hombre

Esta es la historia de Brida, una nina irlandesa, y su sed de conocimiento. Siempre se ha interesado en diversos aspectos de la magia, pero ahora esta en busca de algo mas. Su busqueda la lleva a conocer gente de gran sabiduria, que comienza a ensenarle acerca del mundo espiritual. Conoce a un hombre sabio que le ensena a superar sus miedos y a una mujer que le ensena como danzar al ritmo del mundo y rezarle a la luna. A medida que Brida busca su destino, lucha por encontrar el equilibrio entre sus relaciones y su deseo de convertirse en bruja.

Esta fascinante novela incorpora temas que los fanaticos de Paulo Coelho reconoceran y atesoraran--es una historia de amor, pasion, misterio y espiritualidad, del maestro de la ficcion.

About the Author


The Brazilian author PAULO COELHO is considered one of the most influential authors of our times. His books have sold more than 165 million copies worldwide, have been released in 170 countries and been translated into 80 languages. Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, he soon discovered his vocation for writing. He worked as a director, theater actor, songwriter and journalist. His collaboration with Brazilian composer and singer Raul Seixas gave some of the greatest classic rock songs in Brazil. In 1986, a special meeting led him to make the pilgrimage to Saint James Compostela (in Spain). The Road to Santiago was not only a common pilgrimage but a turning point in his existence. A year later, he wrote 'The Pilgrimage', an autobiographical novel that is considered the beginning of his career. In the following year, COELHO published 'The Alchemist'. Slow initial sales convinced his first publisher to drop the novel, but it went on to become one of the best selling Brazilian books of all time.
