A novel of magical realism featuring a circle of crones and their friends, including a cat named Mme. Blavatsky|
Author: Barbara Ardinger [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Category: Women's spirituality, Goddess spirituali Level: All
Acclaimed author Barbara Ardinger’s classic work, Pagan Every Day: Finding the Extraordinary in Our Ordinary Lives, was critically hailed as “a delightful and enlightening book [written] with wit and panache, as well as with deep scholarship.” Her numerous books, Quicksilver Moon, Goddess Meditations and Finding New Goddesses among them, have elicited equally high praise, and coming this month is Barbara’s newest novel … twenty years in the making and filled with magical realism.
Set in Long Beach’s historic Rose Park neighborhood, Secret Lives tells the adventures in a year in the lives of a circle of crones, mothers, and a maiden. Among the other characters are the Green Man, an ageless Neolithic shaman, a ghostly inquisitor, the Norns gone mad in the modern world, and a lost goddess who reminds us of Red Riding Hood. And then there’s Madame Blavatsky, the talking cat that is the circle’s too-familiar familiar. There are both love and cosmic war in Secret Lives, and there are also 15 rituals in the 27 chapters.
Secret Lives is a big novel about big issues—aging and death, the way our society treats its senior citizens, women’s friendships, the powers of love, the theory and practice of magic, the rebirth of the Goddess and Her ancient religion. It’s about the untidy mysteries of human life.
As the baby boom generation ages, the issues addressed in Secret Lives become more significant to readers. Also more recognizable. Issues that used to matter only to their parents are now starting to pop up in the boomers’ own lives. This novel will thus appeal not only to the large audience that reads pagan fiction, but also to mainstream readers who love a good, complicated story and may be curious about pagans and gods and goddesses. As they read, they will learn a great deal.
Secret Lives will be available on Amazon as a (very thick) trade paperback and an e-book. Barbara would love to visit your bookstore or coven or circle to talk about the process of writing this long, complicated, magical novel.
