Random House, Inc.
In this enchanting book, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES shares several small stories that, like Matriochka dolls, fit inside one another. Taken together, they are a moving testament to the enduring legacy of stories and to the triumph of love over loss. Dr. Estes masterfully blends the bitter and the sweet, the dark and the light, despair and hope, into a wonderful gift that illuminates and strengthens, a gift that will be cherished by all who receive it.
