we destroy what we love


A bunch of women in leather drive around the Mojave desert on motorcycles. They call themselves 'The Valkyries' after the Norse mythical warrior women who chose to win or die in battle.
These are the women, Paulo had to find in order to not destroy what he loved according to 'J', his master.
And this is the story of "The Valkyries" by Paulo Coelho. This story also involves his wife Christine.

This book is about trying understand what we love. About trying to understand how we ruin it. And about how to protect it.
This book also has a unique perspective inside a woman's mind. The different role playing a woman does is so beautifully shown. And Paulo's personal touch remains.
