Vrăjitoarea din Portobello
The Witch of Portobello Portuguese : A Bruxa de Portobello is a fiction work by Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho published in , about a woman born in Transylvania to a Romani mother in a gypsy tribe without wedlock. The central character is abandoned by her birth mother because the father was a foreigner gadje and later adopted by a wealthy Lebanese couple. The work also expounds a selection of philosophies, which bear a certain degree of similarity to Coelho's teachings from previous novels and carry the characteristic imprint of his own ideas, as well as a citation regarding the ephemeral nature of desires, which appears in most of Coelho's novels. The writer elucidates the opinion that the Church has deviated by its stringent rules to the point where it no longer serves Jesus Christ , or as put in his words in one of the interviews: "It's a very long time since they've allowed me in there [the Church]". As the book begins, Athena is dead. How she ended up that way creates the intrigue sustaining the book. As a child, she shows a strong religious vocation and reports seeing angels and saints , which both impresses and worries her parents.
