This is the second edition of a uniquely empowering, international word-of-mouth best seller about wild landscapes, female mythology, and the challenges facing modern women. It is a book for any woman who has ever lost her way and who sees a wasteland at the heart of modern existence and longs to live a more authentic, rooted life once again.

I wanted to love this and get totally wrapped up in it, and although I was able to relate to the overall message of the book the flat verbal presentation plus the overly repetitive story thread through the book stopped me dead around chapter 4. Just couldn't go back to it after that.

Very funny and easy to listen to. Only thing to note is that I think this is series 1 and the series 1 advertised is in fact series 2....?

Audible! You have these recodings wrong -the series you have marked up as series 1 is series 2 and vice versa.
very very funny - particularly if you are a parent dealing with adult children - I have actually sent some of Tom's Mum's texts in the past!
