Yes it was gruesome to know about their journey on the slave ship, the visitations of demons through out the book caused her to whimper away and seclude herself from those who was giving her the opportunity at a new life. Tormented by a evil spirit in the form of her father.
For the Indian tribe her visions was a gift that could help them, she thought it was curse with no idea what to do with it.
There is absolutely nothing that can justify slavery in any form but when that slavery is caused by greed and power it gets my blood boiling. We see this happened many times in Africa as their own people sold them into slavery for promised richness. Years later we still struggle with the effects of their actions. Still a hard topic to talk about.
I struggled to follow the emotions and attributes of the characters making them distant and bland. Although well written with a very important plot outlining the struggles of slavery I had no real connection with the characters. Could not feel their confusion, fear or pain. The obvious fear that kept Ayira like a captive in the tee pee for months was at times just to much. Refusing to know anyone or becoming part of the tribe and the love Yellow Feather was ready to give her. Her persistent refusal was not clear, we were never allowed into her thoughts to really understand her struggle.
Little Sparrow, Yellow Feather and Great Eagle tried to reach out but time and again she shoved them away, not interested being part of the tribe. Even if they accepted her just as she was. Their characters not consistent as they interacted with her. But then her cold shoulder was the reason for conflicting emotions and reactions.
Betrayal and hate forming the plot into a intriguing read as we read about Red Sun's evil scheme.
At the end the sacrifice she made saved them all, and her fears and loneliness became something of the past.
Good and evil working against each other to destroy and help the tribe.
If you want to truly escape with a good read, this story will really pull you in. I just can't recommend it highly enough.
