Editorial Reviews

Linda Jean May
Marguerite Chiang has made herself known both professionally and spiritually in her novel, Demeter's Mysteries. The creative muse and insightful woman whom I have been honored to work with, and consult with for many years has reminded me many a time, "I am ready to dance.
PhD, MFT
Nansen D'Sa
In a style all her own, Marguerite Chiang borrows from Greek mythology to help us remember the forgotten joy of living playfully, like a child. After reading the book, one cannot help but question all the acquired habits that get in the way of enjoying life as an adult. A must read for all happiness seeking individuals.

Toni Morley
I was intrigued by the book Demeter's Mysteries. It seems to make sense out of what has become a chaotic time in our history. In the search for the child who exists in the core of each of us the author leads us back through the layers that make up our adult selves to the place where we can once again create and feel joy. I appreciated the combination of poetry and stories webbed into the myth.

William T. Riley
The gentle, wise soul of this extraordinary author permeates this fascinating ancient path she has adapted so effectively to the modern psyche. Enter Demeter's Mysteries with her and find your life smiling with change.
