'I thought the book was utterly fascinating, dazzlingly original and inventive, and written with such wit and flair. the character of Julie is drawn so poignantly - what a woman!' Kate Forsyth 'An engaging and skilfully told tale of a singular character' Sydney Morning Herald 'The divine creature who plummets 'from the painted clouds' to center stage in Kelly Gardiner's gender-bending picaresque Goddess, is based on an actual historical character, Julie d'Aubigny. Scenes sparkle with period details and sensory impressions: all spectacle and shimmer, all gesture and pose, Baroque mask and mirror and role-play. Gardiner does this very well. And her goddess fascinates.' New York Times Book Review 'This is a wonderful story, made all the more gripping for being founded on truth. Gardiner undertakes to bring this ambiguous and outrageous woman back to life ... she succeeds with flair ... I wholeheartedly recommend this book as the most exquisitely-rendered historical novel I have read in years.' Historical Novel Society review

Download and read online The Goddess Potential in PDF and EPUB Every woman has the potential inside to shine bright and to achieve greatness. However, sometimes fear, painful pasts, and toxic environments hold her back. There is no magic secret to success, love, and happiness, but there are steps we can all take to help ourselves stay balanced and sane through all of life's ups and downs. What is the answer to keeping it all balanced? It is the bond with the inner self. And to get that, we must all unleash our own Goddess Potential. With a heartfelt foreword from Estelle Swaray, the Goddess Potential uses eight principles with steps that will help you explore and embrace your inner self. Each principle begins with an affirmation read in the mirror. Why mirror affirmations? Because, retraining the brain combined with nurturing the spirit is the key to success. When you affirm the life you want by staring directly into your own eyes, it's almost like pressing the reset button in your brain. Plus, when information enters the brain through vision and hearing at the same time, it has a greater impact on memory and on storing the information. Self-love and self-mastery is a lifelong journey and The Goddess Potential hopes to help you start that journey. Filled with inspirational steps, personal stories of success and failure, and a unique perspective on basic life principles, it is the perfect guide for women who are truly trying to find themselves. No matter where life has taken you, The Goddess Potential is a reminder that every day is an opportunity for a fresh start. When you unleash your Goddess Potential, you will: -Boost your self-esteem -Worry less about what people think -Have the confidence to reach for your dreams -Have the courage to follow your instincts when it comes to love -Be able to relax even in the presence of uncertainty -Fall in love with your true self -Support and not tear down other women Visit www.thegoddesspotential.com for Empowerment & Sisterhood

Download and read online The White Goddess in PDF and EPUB This labyrinthine and extraordinary book, first published more than fifty years ago, was the outcome of Graves's vast reading and curious research into strange territories of folklore, mythology, religion and magic. Erudite and impassioned, it is a scholar-poet's quest for the meaning of European myths, a polemic about the relations between man and woman, and also an intensely personal document in which Graves explored the sources of his own inspiration and, as he believed, all true poetry. This new edition has been prepared by Grevel Lindop, who has written an illuminating introduction. The text of the book incorporates all Graves's final revisions, as well as his replies totwo of the original reviewers, and a long essay in which he describes the months of inspiration in which The White Goddess was written.
