Every now and then a book comes along that hits a note that speaks far beyond the story on the page, and this is it! I’m enamored by this magical story of sculpture that comes to life, worlds within worlds, Greek mythology, and people who observe much more than just body language. I’m nearly 50, so I’m not the intended audience, but I loved this story from the perspective of a story well told, and also as an empowering example of women helping women to grow, thrive, and embrace our uniqueness. Most of all, this book makes me want to go play with beads, and weave something, play the piano, and maybe even pull out my paints. This book is a life affirming study in the nature of creativity and our power to help people live true non-conformist lives of authenticity and compassion. I love the story, and I love the heart and creativity of the storytelling.
BTW, the author Susan Schaefer Bernardo also wrote another favorite book, The Big Adventures of Tiny House. BTW, if you have children, you’re going to want a copy of everything Susan Schaefer Bernardo and Courtenay Fletcher have ever written. Their books are spectacular!!
