The Shaman of Turtle Valley
Phyllis Duncan)'s review
May 17, 2019
An intricate story and relatable characters. This is a story of family: the lengths we go to in creating them and the lengths we'll go to in preserving them. Intelligent writing and an interesting narrative style makes these characters people you've known or encountered. A wonderful blending as well of the shamanic traditions of two widely diverse cultures. The Ulster Scot "tradition" of holding a grudge for generations is described here in sensitive detail, as is the trauma of being uprooted and dropped into a culture you have no understanding of. A moving read that will leave you thinking about what happened next and hoping for the best.
