A classic masterwork of spiritual tension and realization from Paulo Coelho, this powerful story of one man’s battle with self-doubt and fear is now available in a beautiful new package from HarperOne. An essential volume alongside Coelho’s other bestselling and influential books, such as The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, Brida, and The Winner Stands Alone, the searing and unforgettable narrative in The Valkyries asks the questions most central to all literature—and all of humanity’s quest for understanding. Why is it that we destroy the things we love most? And how can we learn to let go of the past and believe in the future?
This is honestly one the greatest stories I've ever heard, and being true makes it all the more special. If you have enjoyed other books by Paulo Coelho, as I have, then you will truly appreciate an inside look into the experiences that helped to shape this uniquely creative being. The book provided me with a great degree of inspiration and positive comfort in my personal path as I can see the author, whom I admire greatly, struggled with so much and is so beautifully human. I totally suggest this book to anyone, especially couples. I will definitely read this book several times.
