How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves—even if we are unsure of who we are?

The Witch of Portobello is the story of a mysterious woman named Athena, told by the many who knew her well—or hardly at all.

“People create a reality and then become the victims of that reality. Athena rebelled against that—and paid a high price.”—Heron Ryan, journalist

“Athena’s great problem was that she was a woman of the twenty-second century living in the twenty-first. Did she pay a price? She certainly did. But she would have paid a still higher price if she had repressed her natural exuberance. She would have been bitter, frustrated, always saying ‘I’ll just sort these things out, then I’ll devote myself to my dream,’ always complaining that ‘the conditions are never quite right.’”—Deirdre O’Neil, known as Edda

Like The Alchemist, The Witch of Portobello is the kind of story that will transform the way listeners think about love, passion, joy, and sacrifice.

    " I wouldn't say that I enjoyed the story as a whole, but there were some moments worth remembering and some life lessons that I deemed significant on a personal level, mainly about doing what you love and true happiness. Sometimes the message Coelho tries to convey isn't very clear, but I always say that it's not the book, it's what you make of it. "

    " Selalu bisa menikmati karya Paulo Colheo.Kali ini diceritakan dengan cara sedikit berbeda, menggunakan sudut pandang dari orang-orang di sekitar tokoh utama, Athena. Buku ini kembali mengajak mempertanyakan apa itu cinta, hidup, bahagia... Tuhan. Jangan dilewatkan kalo Anda mampir ke toko buku :) "

    " Not one of Coelho's best books, but it still holds the same sort of metaphysical vibe that his book tend to channel. I normally walk away from his books with some sort of uplifting lesson for life, but the message from this book wasn't as clear to me. "

    " Sherine Khalil's journey to seek purpose in her life has brought her in contact with "The Mother." A wife, a daughter, a friend, a lover and a mentor. Sherine's journey is nothing but life changing. I'm utterly astounded by Paolo Coelho's mastery of portraying life lessons incorporated in human beliefs that allowed me to take good look at where my life is now and make the most out of it. "
