A two-spirit woman named Walks with Spirits, who lived in a time of mysticism, heard voices whispering on the wind in the distant past. These voices gave her the ability to call animals. She wants to rally her childhood buddy Laughing Brook to her cause, though.
Laughing Brook, the daughter of a shaman and a herbalist-midwife, is a prominent member of her community and is responsible for its upkeep. Her strongest desire, other from spending the rest of her life with Walks with Spirits, is to become a healer like her mother.
Both women must learn to face the challenges that lie ahead of them in a land where danger lurks behind every tree and honour is more important than life after an misunderstanding shatter their hopes for happiness.
The experience of reading this book was great. I don’t read many spirituality-related books, so I wasn’t sure if I should pick this one up. However, I yearned to read more historical fiction. And I’m so happy I did since this was such an amazing story. Strong, spiritual, and loving, Walks with Spirits is a beautifully written character.
Finding a character as wonderful as Spirits is difficult. She was a fascinating subject to read about because it was all new to me. The way those two felt about one another and the love they shared were beautifully written, as was the gender representation.
I did believe that the section about domestic violence should have been better explained. Overall, I thought that this was a well written novel with a strong message, and I especially liked the finale. It was a fantastic read.
About The Book
Long ago, in an age of mysticism, Walks with Spirits, a two-spirit woman, perceives voices whispering on the wind and they empower her with the gift of calling animals. But who she truly wishes to call to her side is her childhood friend, Laughing Brook.
Daughter of a shaman and an herbalist-midwife, Laughing Brook holds a prominent place in her society and bears the responsibilities it entails. She is training to be a healer like her mother, but her most compelling desire is to spend her life with Walks with Spirits.
When a misunderstanding crushes their dreams of happiness, both women must learn to face the trials that await them in a land where danger lurks behind every tree and honor means more than life. Will the spirits intervene on their behalf, or are they fated never to manifest their visions of love?
Walks with Spirits is a historical fantasy set in an ancient time. Packed with Native American themes, heart-touching imagery, and an epic love story, Walks with Spirits will immerse you in an inspiring view of life.
Walks with Spirits
This was a truly beautiful story. The author’s ability to balance the heartfelt LGBTQ romance of this novel with the culture and history of the Indigenous people of the North American continent was superb, and the added elements of fantasy-driven narrative based upon the mythos and belief systems of the Indigenous people added both depths to the cast of characters and a fantastic amount of world-building. The heart of this narrative fell to the two amazing protagonists and one of the strongest LGBTQ romances I’ve read this year so far, Walks with Spirits and Laughing Brook.
