Today’s Question by Antonio

Author: Paulo Coelho

Is the story in the book The Valkyries a true one?

The book’s central idea is true (meeting the angel), the journey to Mojave too, but much of what is written is fictionalized. Nevertheless, the most important episode – the meeting of the angel – really did happen, and I left a statue of the Lady of Aparecida in Glorieta Canyon, near Borrego Springs, CA.
