This is a sumptuously produced book, with glossy pages, easy-to-read text, and full colour replicas of ancient, beautiful, Renaissance artworks to show the stories that are told.

The goddesses, and their stories, covered within this book are: the Ancient Mother Goddess, Aphrodite, Ariadne, Artemis, Athena, Circe, Daphne, Demeter, Flora, Hathor, Isis, Kali, Kuan Yin, Leda, Medea, Pandora, Pele, Psyche, Sekhmet, Snake Goddess.

There is a heavy emphasis on Greek and Roman goddesses, but if anything, this book is so beautiful - and the stories so well-told - that no matter what deities you're interested in, this book will be a great asset to your shelf. Whether as a book of myths and fairytales that you read to yourself, or as a coffee table book. :) ( )
