A book easy to like, with anecdotes of all kinds filled with magic and theachings. Cerridwen has a beautiful style, she's a natural storyteller with a direct and evocative hand. Some of the stories seemd a bit fantastical to me, but I loved the book in general.

This was a really tough book for me to read because the content touched so much upon abuse and childhood abuse that it was triggering. I do give Cerridwen credit for sharing such a tough life story with the reader. But if you have PTSD or are triggered from abuse or descriptions of abuse, this might not be the book for you. 

Thanks to Netgalley, publisher and author for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

At times this felt so romanticized and fantastical that it was a little disingenuous. But on the whole so much of this book resonated with me and I got so much out of it that I can safely say I loved it. Would definitely recommend it!

Cerridwen Fallingstar provides the reader with an insight to a life lived in all its magickal glory. Thankfully not Wiccan preachy, this memoir is is astute in its teaching of the world around us but also yet so familiar to those who practice a spiritual path. Fallingstars recount Of 1950’s Californian suburban life is both hilarious as it is dangerously accurate. Yes, I too hate those bloody monkeys! The real joy is reading her account of Z Budapest trial whilst she was a teenage reporter for her high school news paper, and her encounter with wild sharks and dolphins. ‘Broth from the Cauldron’ makes for a cosy weekend read.

* Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the RC

I really enjoyed reading this . From a story about a spider that seemed friendly to a little girl to reincarnation. I couldnt put it down! The short stories seemed to flow in a manner that was meant to be. My favorite was a story about reincarnation. The reason for it being my favorite is because I too believe we have lived before and when others open up about their thoughts on past lives I listen. Broth From The Cauldron has much to offer if you are looking for meaningful tales that can make you smile or make you think. This book did both for me.

Broth from the Cauldron is like if Chicken Soup for the Soul was Wicca influenced rather than Christian. Filled with tales of the authors life, or her friends, it is both inspiring and heart-wrenching.
