This week’s Fae Friday topic is one that I came up with in honor of St. Patrick’s day, and I’m pretty proud of myself about it!
Did you know that leprechauns are viewed as a type of faerie? I’m sure you know that leprechauns are known for keeping a pot of gold.
This week’s prompt is: What is your hidden treasure of a book?
Many years ago, I got my hands on a copy of a book that rocked my world. It’s called The Mists of Avalon and was written by Marion Zimmer Bradley. While I have always loved the King Arthur legend, they were all told from the point of view of the men in the story, and the women were viewed as weak, solely for producing heirs, and manipulative. This book, however, was the first I had ever seen that told the story from the point of view of the women — and these women were strong, smart, and powerful. It’s one of the few books that I’ve read over and over, and plan to continue reading!
Which book is your hidden treasure?
