There are no words to describe how beautiful and touching this book is that Estes hasn't already used. A collection of short stories and poetry to reclaim the divine feminine where archaic associations are challenged. Stories where 'immaculate virgin' means being so fiercely devoted to loving and protecting her children that she is a pure channel, a vessel for comfort and compassion that will not be buried for long. One of my favorite stories is about a little girl with a porcelain figurine of Mother Mary:

"..for centuries she was heavily painted as light-skinned...But it isn't an issue of color exactly; it's an issue of paling her in every way until she appears frozen, anemic, and half-erased...spoken about in more and more hushed tones...No demure little cabbage, that woman. No paltry, well-behaved carbon dot. No follower of worldly orders. Quite the contrary. Our exemplar. Blessed Mother, she who is renowned as the one able to wear the flaming, exploding fire-lakes of the Sun" (pg.16).

An absolutely stunning read for any eclectic spiritual seeker connected to the divine mother archetype.
