About Lisa Picard

I am an ex-corporate warrior who, like several of the characters in my first book, The Green Lady, had a deeply transformative experience in the forests of South Africa’s Garden Route. You can read all about it on my website. This life-altering experience led to my leaving my city life and corporate job and moving to a remote smallholding, high up in the mountains, on the border of the beautiful indigenous forest. My life partner, fellow author and spiritual healer, Arn Allingham, and I built our off-the-grid home with our own hands. It is my greatest joy to share my love of, and connection with, the forests with others through my writing.

Reviews of The Green Lady by Lisa Picard

Lenore Peters reviewed on Sep. 7, 2015

What a delightful surprise! Since I live in magical forests myself, I can confidently say the author nailed it. Readers will have to remind themselves that it is fiction (or is it??) Given the restricted format of the short stories, the author managed wonders with character development and scenic narrative; the book flows beautifully and moves one in unexpected ways. Definitely inspired writing that stirs around in one's subconscious. I gave it to my teenager as soon as I finished it. Some of the imagery in this book will stay with me until the end of Time; perhaps since it stemmed from the beginning of Time... Spoil yourself with heart-candy.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. This book is a wonderful mixture of spirituality and conservation. The narrator is a journalist on sabbatical. He is writing a book about The Green Lady and it is a compilation of stories about people who have seen this forest Deva. The stories are very well-woven into the book. Though this is purely fiction, it does make one stop and pause to believe in God and care about conservation.

I so enjoyed this book. It's refreshing in it's originality. I got lost in the magic of it all, felt the emotions and came up for air, back into reality as each story closed and another amazing, yet different story and encounter with the Green Lady in the forest unfolded. Beautifully written.

This book is amazing in its depth of feeling and spirituality. I have visited the area described in the book and felt something warm embracing me there - I now understand a little more about what I was experiencing.

I am generally wary of what I would term 'esoteric, airy fairy books', but this one was truly a lovely surprise. Although it draws on distinctly European mythical traditions, the characters are authentically (South) African. A warm and human book.

It's hard to say what I love most about this book. It is beautifully written and delightfully magical. It is also emotionally touching and moving. But perhaps the thing I would have to choose as favorite, is that it communicates profound spiritual concepts in a way that is so light and gentle that, really, anyone could read this - not just "spiritual seekers". Indeed, I think this book could even be a great introduction to such spiritual concepts for younger readers too, perhaps from early teens up.
