A beautiful story that blends Native American myths with a family trying to keep it together and heal.
The death of Maria and Ernest's son shattered their world and even now after 15 years the pain and grieving are still with them. Their other son ran away and is dealing with addiction and depression, their daughter has relationship issues and is also lost and Ernest is under the grips of Alzheimer's.
When Maria and Ernest agree to take in a foster boy they have no idea the memories that will surface and how much this boy is similar to the son they lost. It is as if a ray of light has come into the room as Ernest's disease does a turnaround and Maria feels more joy every day. Throughout the book, there are references to the Cherokee's Trail of Tears and many of the myths that have been shared through the generations. There is a hypnotic spiritual feeling to the writing even when dealing with grief and pain. Fans of Willy Vlautin, THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS, and WINTER COUNT will find much to enjoy here. 4 stars
