it was amazing
bookshelves: short-story

This is a beautifully written and powerful story that's lyrical and cuts deep. It's also an excellent weaving of real life and the mythical lives of gods. About women looking for salvation, strength and belonging when all of this--and so much more--has always been inside themselves.

Very empowering. And fun!

It's also about love. How it ebbs and flows, how it can be the most wonderful thing in the world. Or turn out to be the most poisonous.

I love stories that work on several levels at once, and fill you with thoughts afterwards. And this tale is definitely one that lingers long after the last word.

But don't take my word for it, go and read it yourself.
