eBook Hidden Passages: Tales to Honor the Crones *From:* BoS-Pagan@yahoogroups.com *On Behalf Of *Michael Gleason Hidden Passages - Tales to Honor the Crones by Vila SpiderHawk © 2007 Vanilla Heart Publishing ISBN 978-0-97965445-6-5 262 pages $15.99 (U.S.) The subtitle of this book, "Tales to Honor the Crones", gave me a false impression. A collection of stories about crones should be about the end of life, but these stories are full of life. They are vivid, arresting, and entertaining. Oh, there is death and loss, but there are also children scrambling up trees. There is somber reflection but there is also joyful discovery and anticipation. There is the certainty of lives running their allotted course as well as the wonder of new life burgeoning forth. Like life itself, you never know what to expect. Vila SpiderHawk is much more than an entertaining author. In her stories there are lessons to be learned (gently) and things to contemplate. There are moments to laugh, and times to wonder. The only problem I had with this book was that it was too easy to read. I had promised myself that I would relax and enjoy this book over a week's time. That didn't happen. I started reading and found that I couldn't put it down. I finished it off in a mere two days, and found myself wanting more. Pick this book up, and you may find yourself wishing for more as I did. Somehow, I suspect that we have not heard the last from Ms. SpiderHawk - in fact, I know we haven't as I have her next book sitting at my bedside as I write this. I sincerely hope that she has more to offer us. Her books are educational on several levels, and entertaining on at least as many levels.— by Michael Gleason can be found online at alt.religion.wicca.moderated and at alt.pagan.magick .
