Gretel’s Story: Finding the Way Home
by Jean Reynolds is available from www.Amazon.com (paperbound, $9.99 and Kindle, $1.99) by clicking here:
Gretel is a homeless and hungry girl in a tale that was already old when the Grimm brothers wrote it down almost two centuries ago. But the story of her abandonment, imprisonment, and ultimate triumph is still meaningful in the way that all old, well-told stories are meaningful.
The themes in Gretel’s story are still vivid and powerful: People continue to find both love and hatred within their families, evil and goodness still struggle to destroy each other, and our lives endlessly repeat the archetypal cycle that begins with the loss of innocence and ends in wisdom. The parts of ourselves that we fear the most may be the hiding places of our deepest truths and greatest strengths.
Praise for Gretel’s Story:
This book is for everyone who has ever felt the soul’s longing, the emptiness of loss and betrayal, or the aching for a magical relationship. Reynolds so eloquently takes the reader from darkness to insight, from numbness to adventure, and from the old to the new. A must-read for all those searching for wisdom and truth on life’s journey.
