A very special little book to be re-read often enough to remind us of the power of story telling. Using only one story, which is told to her by her 'auntie' , she shows us the power of passing on life and love through the generations. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345388356, Hardcover)

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.

A series of healing tales, nested one within another, that speak to the question, "What is enough?"
