by Sharon Blackie - £14.99 September Publishing (2016)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781910463253 | ISBN 10: 1910463256
Aged 30, Sharon Blackie found herself weeping in the car park of the multinational corporation where she worked, wondering if this was what a nervous breakdown felt like. Somewhere along the line, she realised, she had lost herself – and so began her long journey back to authenticity, rootedness and belonging.
In this extraordinary book of myth, memoir and modern-day mentors, Blackie faces the wasteland of Western culture, the repression of women and the devastation of our planet. She boldly names the challenge: to reimagine women’s place in the world, and to rise up, firmly rooted in our own native landscapes and the Celtic stories and wisdom which spring from them.
A haunting Heroine’s Journey for every woman who finds inspiration and solace in the natural world.
