5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By khart on April 11, 2011
Format: Paperback
The Woman Who Owned the Shadows by Paula Gunn Allen is an example of a Native American woman's struggle to find purpose in her life within several different minorities. These minorities include being a woman, a lesbian and a Native American.
While the content of the book was thought provoking and enlightening, it was difficult to follow. Even with the text being put into sections, each representing a different aspect of Ephanie, the main character's life, it was hard to follow at times. As a result, I would encourage this book to the readers who like and are capable of reading a text very closely, but not for a beach read.
Reading this text closely though, the reader is able to move with the cyclical journey of Ephanie as she escapes the shadows of her past that have left her life in chaos. Using her story as an example, this book urges the readers to step into the sunlight and out of their own shadows.
