“Thank you for this exquisite tale. It will open heartminds the world over. Thank goodness.
This tale is no fantasy, it is as true as a potato. The utter bleakness of our world is true. So is the last forest – as real as remembrance and longing. And the four sisters, they are the realest thing about us. They only need to be set free. Everything depends on it." –
Joanna Macy, author World as Lover, World as Self
“We are in need of a particular form of medicine in these uncertain times. It is a soul medicine and it comes to us through beauty, through sorrow, through poetry and it comes through potent stories. Traditionally, fairy tales carried the ability to enchant us and stir our imaginations in ways that enabled us to see with different eyes. The Four Sisters is a tale of such magnitude, inviting us to listen deeply and to pay attention. It is the kind of story that reminds us of another way of knowing the world through an intimate and tender encounter with the sacred. Azul-Valerie Thome has gifted us with a story that does just this; it brings us back into an embrace with the living forces of the world.”
Francis Weller, author of The Wild Edge of Sorrow
"A tender bitter-sweet story that floats, gliding between sunset and sunrise, a story that whispers truth into the shadowed silence of indifference, and then pauses, alert, intent, listening for the sound of love awoken to action.”
Mac Macartney, author of The Children’s Fire: Heart Song of a People
“With skilful words Azul takes us on a subtle journey rich in meaning and discovery. The artwork is exquisite.”
Dr Stephan Harding, author of Animate Earth
“This story of HAmsat and her four companions, of her visit to the Four Spirits of the Last Forest of the Earth is heartfelt and beautiful, inspiring and deep, grounded, and real. It’s a dream made manifest and if you let it touch your soul, the dreams of your life will walk themselves awake.’
Manda Scott, author of Boudica: Dreaming Series
