More details Brida is a tale of love, passion, mystery, and spirituality from a master storyteller. This is the story of the journey of a young Irish girl, Brida and her pursuit of wisdom. She has long been interested in various aspects of magic and wants to become a witch. But she is also searching for something more.
The characterization is real but the storyline is a bit sketchy. Brida is loaded with fragmented inspirational messages. Coelho beautifully describes soul mates and how can one truly love and follow his path in faith without fear or regret. According to the author, disappointment, defeat and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way and to encourage us to have the courage to make mistakes, to risk failure and disillusion, and to keep searching.
Search for one’s destiny, true love and a soul mate, finding a path to a higher and more joyous self, making choices that lead to these desirables are the usual Paulo Coelho staples themes that one finds in Brida. They do not seem to shine with the usual Coelho brilliance; however, the novel does retain some elements of his usual eloquence and wisdom and can be read for the same.
