Magical, soothing storytelling with subtle cello accompaniment
This is my first introduction to the work of Clarissa Pinkola Estes and - what can I say? - I am in awe of her now. What a wonderful, authentic, expressive voice. So soothing to me as I was about to drift off to sleep. Except I didn't sleep on the first listening! I was so enthralled my the magical aura she created that I listened to the very end.
By the way, I made the mistake of buying this recording through Audible/Amazon -- and right at the end as Dr. Estes's lovely voice left me all warm and fuzzy and drifting off to sleep, a canned corporate man's voice broke in and loudly announced, "Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program." Really quite jarring and rude. Yes, and the moral of this story: I suggest you buy directly from Sounds True without the additional expense and insensitive corporate packaging of Audible.
Thank you, Dr. Estes!
