The Gift of Story: A Wise Tale About What Is Enough by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
I decided to get this book after reading a great quote from it, and was surprised when the book that arrived seemed smaller than the smallest children’s book! So as I’m sure you can imagine, whatever review I write here will barely be able to do the book justice without revealing too much of what it is about.
What I will say is this: I thoroughly enjoyed this Gift of Story, and am grateful to own it. I will revisit this story periodically, to glean its wisdom once again, and I will share this book with others. Sometimes what we need most is not a new story, but rather, the wisdom from a story passed down through many voices and generations.
This is the kind of book that can be passed along to others easily, and by doing so, we continue to share the Gift of Story. In doing so, we experience the wisdom contained within the title of this book: about what is enough.
