Untie the Strong Woman: Blessed Mother's Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul

"There is a promise Holy Mother makes to us," explains Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, "that any soul needing comfort, vision, guidance or strength, can cry out to her, flee to her protection, and Blessed Mother will immediately arrive with veils flying. She will place us under her mantle for refuge, and give us the warmth of her most compassionate touch, and strong guidance about how to go by the soul's lights."

    Story
    "Gorgeous recording by a gifted storyteller."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Untie the Strong Woman to be better than the print version?

    Yes. This is the kind of book that audio books were created for. The author seems to be speaking to me rather than reading her book. I could read it but I don't know if I would have imagined some of her emphasis. And she has a masterful 'pause' that couldn't possibly come out in a book.


    What other book might you compare Untie the Strong Woman to and why?

    Her previous book, Women Who Run With Wolves. I haven't been downloading audiobooks long enough to have a huge history with how other authors have read their books.


    What about Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s performance did you like?

    Her voice is hypnotic. The words are evocative. I thought I could listen to this book and work at the same time. I actually just sat back and drank my tea - and listened.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Awaken the Holy Mother.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a truly unique audiobook experience. I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "CPE Reads, and will swaddle you in love"
    Would you listen to Untie the Strong Woman again? Why?

    I've listened several times already. There's so much more being said in this book than the words would lead us to believe. Each time I listen, I am allowed to drop into a deeper layer of understanding.


    What does Clarissa Pinkola Estes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice. CPE's voice, her slight accent, the way we are allowed to hear words form in her mouth, the way she laughs, and lets you feel as though you *could* be listening to your grandmother telling her own stories - this reading of Untie the Strong Woman is a Soul-balm, soothing, comforting and captivating.


    Any additional comments?

    I only gave 4 stars for the reading because it is a bit soft - which may be an enhancement, lending to the atmosphere if you can listen in an quiet environment. For me, in my car, or at the computer in the office, it's a bit tricky to get the volume balanced.
