By Sarah Walton

We are looking forward to welcoming Dr Sarah Walton to The Atlantis Bookshop to launch her novella, Sophia’s Tale.  This is a retelling of the Gnostic story of Pistis Sophia. Sophia’s Tale is a fairy tale for adults about how the goddess of wisdom became wise.

Seduced by the Emperor of Diamonds, Sophia follows her beloved into a dream. Lost in the desert, she begins her adventure in The Land of Impermanence. From palace harem to street brothel, Sophia must live by her wits as she encounters soothsayers, lecherous gatekeepers and warmongering desert tribes, fleeing the ruthless Emperor to find her way home before he finds her.

A retelling of the ancient Gnostic myth, Pistis Sophia, for the modern heart – and what one woman is prepared to risk to discover her authentic self. Banished from the Bible in the 4th century, SOPHIA’S TALE gives Sophia back her voice.
