Brida is the story of a young woman, Brida O’Fern, and her path through the Wicca pagan tradition. Brida is only 21 years old when she meets a magician and asks to become a witch.

Love is the only way we have to bridge over to the spiritual world. When we love, we want to be better than we already are, and love makes us better.
Brida captures the essence of Paulo Coelho — thought-provoking spirituality, belief in the beauty of the physical and emotional worlds, and the Divine Feminine.
