From the Publisher:


A fascinating tale, full of intrigue, in which the readers discovers an ancient tradition based on female strength and love. It tells the story of Athena through the people that knew her well and those who did not know her at all.

La Bruja de Portobello relata la vida de Athena mediante la gente que la conocía bien o que no la conocía nada. Entre ellos, su madre adoptiva, un periodista, una sacerdotisa, un historiador y una actriz. Cada persona ilustra un aspecto diferente del carácter de Athena, describiendo lo que vieron y experimentaron y también compartiendo sus propias impresiones, creencias e inquietudes.
