Begins the story of a Australian Aboriginal family, but it is really only part of the story. Enters Ty, a true Shaman and leader, against the backdrop of the modern day city. Outside of his community, he is visiting his brother, who is away for school and manages to find himself waking up to a beautiful girl. Aine, the roommate of Ty's brother, is another young adult, living and going to school, but the chance meeting with Ty will change her life and alter her outlook on life greatly. This book is a journey, for both Ty and Aine, into both of their lives and the meaning of how one views the world. Becoming part of the Aboriginal culture and each other lives, they find more in each other and why they were brought together.
“I know. Why would you have?” His smile enfolds me, “It's a lifestyle Kitten, a way of living. A belief system if you like. It is a way of dealing with life, a dedicated understanding of spiritual things in a dance with your world, the Dreaming. It can't be explained in sentence or even a story though stories are primarily how it is told or taught.”
“It sounds complicated.”
“No more so than life is complicated.”
I found this book to be one of the most interesting stories I have read, for 2013. while it was not that long, it was so full of detail that I refer to it as being dense. Very interesting background stories and I feel like I have a much more full understanding of this culture than before. It took a little while for the story to solidify, in my brain, but it kept me thinking about it for that time. I'll be interested to see what happens in the next installment.
