About this author

She used some of that material to develop a course called Wisdom in Story, which ultimately became the basis for the Wisdom of the Toga book.

Creative and imaginative. Multi-layered with intersecting stories/characters; some of which could have been more deeply developed to add a richer experience but, as written, it was enough to hold my interest throughout the book. Enjoyed this read.

I'd give this 3.5 stars...not a page-turner, but one of those stories that I will sit with and think about for a few days while it all falls into place. A bit eerie at times (almost disturbing), but a very interesting read. Quite an imaginative tale,...more
