woman's spiritual journey
Paulo Coelho, the internationally famous author of “The Alchemist” has woven a unique and compelling tale in The Witch of Portobello. What draws you into the story is the unique writing and the characters. The book describes life of a murdered young woman and journey around the world and into an unseen spiritual world. Shreine Khalil, known as Athena was born in Romania and her parents, a successful industrialist family of Beirut adopted her, as their much loved, much-wanted daughter. She grew in wisdom and beauty. She had the secret desire to become a saint someday. She got married and divorced with a son in twenty. She did many jobs but could satisfy her restless soul. She went to find her birth mother. She kept constantly destroying and rebuilding herself. Everything in her life had followed the same pattern: from lost to found but there was only one thing which remained intact, that was her son. He was the only connecting thread.
The book talks about free love, a river which overflows its banks. That’s the path the Witch of Portobello was following throughout her life, until she was brutally murdered. told from various perspectives of the title characters friends and families, it felt that the book is written by many authors with different language and different perspectives. A very sad ending. But I love Paulo Coelho's works. He is just a master author.
