‘But how will I know who my soulmate is?’ …‘By taking risks,’ she said to Brida. ‘ By risking failure, disappointment, dillusion, but never ceasing in your search for love. As long as you keep looking, you will triumph in the end.’
The story starts when the main character Brida meets the wise man, who is much older than her. He teaches her the secrets of nature and the control of her surroundings and her fears, by the means of her thoughts.
