Why do we destroy the things we love most? This is the question Paulo Coelho faces when he is confronted with his past. Together with his wife Christina, he embarks on a journey through the soaring heat of the Mojave desert. During the 40 days journey, surrounded by doubts and temptations and entering their innermost conflicts and questions, they met the valkyries, strange warrior women.
In The Valkyries, Paulo Coelho candidly tells about his fight against his fear and self-doubt. It is also an account of two persons who make a huge effort to understand each other, but most of all it is powerful message about forgiving our past and believing in our future. When we accept and recognize ourselves in our strengths and weaknesses, then we are prepared to change the world.
