I never expected a fantasy fiction book to inspire me to discover myself more deeply, but in a way, it did.
The Mists of Avalon is a hefty 800+ pages set in the time of King Arthur (not my usual genre) but what hooked me was following the classic knights in shining armor story from the female characters' perspective. I really related to the main character, Morgaine, and her fears and uncertainty of moving forward through the twists and turns of life.
And unexpectedly, it made me curious about pagan rituals and the power of nature. And although I am far from being a "modern witch" and I'm still not really an "outdoorsy" person, it did encourage me to feel the benefits of grounding my feet in the cold water of a mountain creek or trying locally foraged teas harvested on the full moon. Although subtle (and maybe all in my mind!), I did feel a benefit and I'm not as dismissive as I used to be.
So if you are looking for a good read, I recommend picking up The Mists of Avalon. Don't let the 1983 publishing date fool you, it's still a great personal growth journey story 30 years later.
P.S. And no, I haven't watch the movie :)
