"You don't belong up there -- the forces of nature will drive you out."
The answers to these questions, the rebuttal to this proposition are all found in "The Circle of Na'mow". No one comes to the mountain ready qualified to live there. Some have the ability to transform, and are accepted. Some are too attached to conventional ways, and are rejected.
The transformation of Ella, Lola, and Bridget is told through three narrative threads: in the foreground we see them struggling to save themselves and their families in the brutal wildfire which threatens their mountain community. In flashbacks we follow their journey from youth and innocence through family and community building to seasoned maturity. On the spiritual level we see them slowly being drawn into the mysterious but all encompassing "Circle of Na'mow".
This novel is exciting and entertaining. It excels in its vivid story-telling. You will love the terror and beauty of living on the shoulder of Na'mow.
You'll cry and laugh reading this book. A wonderful story. Highly recommend it.
Excellent first novel ladies! I selfishly wish you success so that you will write a sequel!!!
Loved this book! The story reminded me of "The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood" but with more levels than the just the coming of age story of three girls. The book beautifully mingles metaphysical elements in and around Lola, Ella, and Bridget's terror of facing a wildfire head-on and life's decades of memories. I fell in love with the friendships and the mountain community in the book. I felt like I was a part of it while I read the book. It is a page turner and I had many "ah ha" moments. Inspired by real events - what a life these authors have led! The book has everything a reader wants - it made me laugh, cry, and opened my eyes wide to live my life with a new found wonder and passion.
