Midlife can be a time of great change – inner and outer. How do we journey through this…and what can we learn in the process? Molly Remer is our personal guide to the unraveling and reweaving required in midlife. She invites us to take a walk with the goddess Persephone, whose story of descent into the Underworld has much to teach us. This book is a journey of soul-rebuilding, of putting the pieces of oneself back together.
Walking with Persephone weaves together personal insights and reflections with experiences in practical priestessing, family life, and explorations of the natural world. It advocates opening our eyes to the wonder around us, encouraging the reader to both look within themselves for truths about living, but also to the earth, the air, the animals, and plants we share our lives with.
Part memoir, part poetry, part soul guide, Molly’s evocative voice is in the great American tradition of sacred nature writing.
What a gloriously contemplative, hopeful, truthful book. It took me deep into my innermost heart and reminded me of the simple grace of being alive. A book to keep nearby when you forget what matters most.

Growing up as a high-achiever and a good girl, Molly Remer always did everything she could for everyone else, until it became too much. Her story of “losing her soul” will resonate with many women. She learns that it is necessary to do less for others in order to restore her self.
