Maria Padilha is unique in as much as she did not begin HER journey as a goddess, spirit demon, or archetypal energy. Her origins can be found in the history books as a wife and as a queen. Veronica Rivas takes us on a fascinating journey as she shares this woman’s history as well as her place within the magickal hierarchy. Veronica Rivas shares with us her enthusiasm, and her love for this once queen. Maria Padilha is professionally researched and beautifully written.
