I didn't finish this book... I feel kind of bad about that, because I usually always do finish a book once I start it, but the writing style and topic got on my nerves. It's about Athena and...well, it goes through people's interviews/written memoirs about her after her death. So we never know anything from the "primary source," if you will. The "voices" of a variety of characters sound all the same - a father, her ex-husband, her teacher, a journalist, her student, a man who taught her calligraphy, her mother, her biological mother - despite their different upbringings and ages and roles.
Apparently she's in a quest to get in touch with the female face of God/Mother/etc. It got a little too preachy at points, relegated to the not-finished pile. I have to say, though, the only reason it's not a 1-star rating is because there are some insightful lines/quotes in the book.
