Who is Athena? The orphan abandoned by her gypsy mother in Transylvania. The child taken to Beirut by her adoptive parents. The clerk working in a large bank in London. The successful real estate agent in Dubai. The priestess of Portobello Road. Athena is the main character in The Witch of Portobello. Her story is told by the people who knew her, amongst them, her adoptive mother, a journalist researching vampirism, a priest, a teacher of calligraphy, and an actress. They each draw a different facet of her character, describing what they saw and experienced as well as their own impressions, beliefs and anxieties.

For some weeks now Paulo Coelho has been posting chapters from the new book "Witch of Portobello" on his blog. Tens of thousands of people have already visited http://www.paulocoelhoblog.com in order to follow Athena’s story and, if they wish, to leave their comments afterwards. By the launch date, Paulo will have posted almost one third of the book.
