Reach of the Heron
by Angela Koenig
After an automobile accident takes the lives of her parents and nearly her own, Arkadia O’Malley faces a painful recovery. As she seeks custody of her younger sister, Rini, she must also contend with the obstruction of Irish law. Both Church and State oppose placing a child with an unmarried woman. In Elsewhere, an elder world, she is introduced to the ancient lore of a shaman.
