Konu: Athena, yani gerçek adıyla Şirin Halil ya da diğer adıyla Aya Sofya, inandığı şeylerin peşinden giden, içinde ki boşlukları doldurmak için elinden gelen her şeyi yapan (dans etmek, çocuk doğurmak, hat sanatını öğrenmek, arazi satışı yapmak gibi) bir kadındır. Ama hep içinde bir şeylerin eksik olduğunu hissetmiştir. Bunun için hep daha ileriye gitmiştir. Edda'nın dediği gibi: Athena'nın en büyük sorunu, 21.yüzyılda yaşayan bir 22. yüzyıl kadını olması ve bu gerçeği hiç gizlememesiydi. Bir bedel ödedi mi? Kuşkusuz, ödedi. Ama coşkuyla taşan gerçek benliğini bastırsaydı, çok daha büyük bir bedel ödeyecekti. (Tanıtım Bülteninden)

Plot: As the book begins, Athena is dead. How she ended up that way creates the intrigue sustaining the book. The child, Sherine Khalil renames herself Athena after her uncle was discussing with her mother on how her real name will betray her origins and something like Athena gave nothing away. As a child, she shows a strong religious vocation and reports seeing angels and saints, which both impresses and worries her parents.

She goes into a London University to pursue Engineering at the age of 19 but it's not what her heart wanted. One day she just decides that she wanted to drop out of college, get married and have a baby. Here, the author mentions that this might be due to the fact that she was abandoned herself and wants to give all that love she could to her child which she didn't receive from her birth mother. Two years later, her marriage falls apart because they are facing too many problems due to their young age and lack of money or mostly because he felt that she loved only the child and used him to get what she wanted. A very interesting quote she uses is "From Ancient Greece on, the people who returned from battle were either dead on their shields or stronger, despite or because of their scars. It's better that way: I've lived on a battlefield since I was born, but I'm still alive and I don't need anyone to protect me." She grows into a woman in search of answers to many questions that arise within a person. She had a life which many felt was content because she had a child of her own, money, and friends; everything but her mind was at peace, so she searches for the answer to the classical question of "Who am I?" through many experiences. In her quest, she opens her heart to intoxicating powers of mother and becomes a controversial spiritual leader in London. ( witch of portobello)
