An Encounter With AngelsBook - 1995
"In this autobiographical tale, we follow Coelho and his wife Chris on a 40-day spiritual journey through the Mojave Desert in search of the eternal feminine. Translation has an uncertain feel and suffers from too much editing, pruning, and rearranging of the original as well as occasional misreading"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
A classic masterwork of spiritual tension and realization from Paulo Coelho, this powerful story of one man’s battle with self-doubt and fear is now available in a beautiful new package from HarperOne. An essential volume alongside Coelho’s other bestselling and influential books, such as The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, Brida, and The Winner Stands Alone, the searing and unforgettable narrative in The Valkyries asks the questions most central to all literature—and all of humanity’s quest for understanding. Why is it that we destroy the things we love most? And how can we learn to let go of the past and believe in the future?
The best-selling Brazilian author of The Alchemist recounts his journey through the Mohave Desert, a quest for spiritual enlightenment and self-knowledge, love, and an encounter with guardian angels. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.
After being directed by a mysterious master to find his guardian angel, the author and his wife, Chris begin an adventure in the Mojave Desert where they meet a variety of colorful characters

"The love of the exterminating angel, who one day will take away our soul, and of the guardian angel, who brings our soul back. Love in motion."
"Love at war," Chris said.
"There is no love in peace. Whoever seeks peace is lost." -- Gene to Chris and Paulo
