I love the beauty of this book. The characters feel real to me, especially Sister Raven. She is a good person. She feels anger, righteous and deep. But, she doesn’t let it destroy her. The simple love of family described in this book is just gorgeous. Ms. Levine does a wonderful job of showing us Pre-Colonial Native American life without reverting to tired tropes.
This book was a fantastic read that I think would delight boys and girls plus men and women of all ages. It has magic and revenge, love and redemption. Nature gods and folklore, storytelling and journeys. I loved every single word and can’t wait to read more from this author.
