First Impressions: Hidden Passages-Tales to Honor the Crones by Vila Spiderhawk

Synopsis from the Back of the Book:  An anthology of eight beautifully crafted stories about women of different cultures and eras, the Crones, sharing their wisdom and their joy, their hearts and souls with girls and women in times of difficulty, change, and transition. 

My First Impression:  This book appealed to be because it is presented as a Celebration of Womanhood.  I think that the art of storytelling and sharing of wisdom between generations is getting lost along with a multitude of other things.  We have so many other options for entertaining ourselves that we just don't seem to listen anymore and are often distracted.  

Previous generations have so much to offer.  While their experiences are certainly a little bit different, I think the overall message is something that can be learned from.  I'm looking forward to immersing myself in these tales which are sure to contain strong women and learning experiences.


I took a moment to visit the authors website and there were several rave reviews for the story on there. I hope you will take a moment to look at her site and and read some of the excerpts she has posted.
