I absolutely loved this book! As in most of Kathleen Eagle's books the hero of this story is Birch Trueblood, a proud Ojibwa healer who makes a meager living for himself, and his young daughter as a shaman who performs rituals for tourists and New Age believers near what used to be Ojibwa ancestral land on Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota. Our heroine, Rochelle LeClair, is the caretaker of the Bruner estate as well as a companion to her elderly and quite eccentric Aunt Meg who is the grand daughter of Martin Bruner who made his fortune as a lumber baron many years ago. When Birch and Robin are caught in a historic Halloween blizzard that strands several other members of Aunt Meg's family this unlikely group of characters take shelter at the old estate and all kinds of strange things begin to happen. This story is a family drama, a romance, and a ghost story that has a dual time line that I found fascinating and equally compelling. I especially enjoyed all of the period clothes and accessories that are a very big part of the story and the revelation of some shocking news that ties the entire story up in a very satisfactory way. I read a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
