Becca, almost 13, lives in her imagination, her escape from being class nerd. She’s unaware that she possesses the spirit and relics of a revered healer of the Akwanakai, a Great Lakes area tribe. She is kidnapped and brought back 350 years by an evil medicine man. Wanaga craves both the power within Becca and revenge against the woman who spurned him. Becca’s escape leads to the love and respect of her people as she adjusts to her new body and a new reality. She is trained as a healer and must confront Wanaga who seeks to destroy her and betray his own people to the white “Bear Faces.”
After a vision quest, Becca becomes Chenoa and at 18 finds the love of a young warrior, fulfills her destiny as a shaman healer, and faces a grave personal sacrifice that could offer life to her spirit sister.
Spirit Sister I Sing Your Song shows the development of an independent Native American woman, deals with the issue of the treatment of Native American artifacts, and presents the culture and spirituality of pre-European Great Lakes area tribes. It also centers around the age-old confrontation of good versus evil.
An engaging blend of historical fiction and magical realism... [Becca] is a strong female character that will appeal to readers of all ages.
Spirit Sister, I Sing Your Song is both entertaining and educational for children and adults alike. It will give the reader an understanding of the world view of the native people of the Great Lakes area.
