Walks with Spirits


Loved it! 😍

A must read historical fiction with beautifully written characters and a heart-warming love that conquers all.

​Long ago, in an age of mysticism, Walks with Spirits, a two-spirit woman, perceives voices whispering on the wind and they empower her with the gift of calling animals. But who she truly wishes to call to her side is her childhood friend, Laughing Brook.

Daughter of a shaman and ​​an herbalist-midwife, Laughing Brook holds a prominent place in her society and bears the responsibilities it entails. She

is training to be a healer like her mother, but her most compelling desire is to spend her life with Walks with Spirits.

When a misunderstanding crushes their dreams of happiness, both women must learn to face the trials that await them in a land where danger lurks behind every tree and honor means more than life. 

​“Sweet daughter, We would have understood. The Creator of all makes no two souls alike. There is no shame in who you love, no matter who it is. Only a lack of love brings shame.”

This book ended up being a wonderful experience. I don’t read a lot of books ​that deal with spirituality​,so​ I was not sure if I should pick this up. But I wanted to read ​more​ historical fantasy. And I am so grateful that I did because this was a wonderful story.​ Walks with ​Spirits is a beautifully written character who is strong​,​spiritual ​and loving. It is ​tough to come across such a wonderful character like Spirits. I enjoyed reading ​about her because ​this is all new territory to me. ​Th​e gender​ representation ​and the way those two felt about each other ​and the love ​they shared were wonderfully written.

​"It is embarrassing for a husband when his wife tells him what to do."
"It is more embarrassing to throw a tantrum like a weaning child!"​

​I did feel like the domestic violence part could have been properly explained.​ All in all this was ​a​ beautifully written book with a powerful message and I love the ending​. It was an amazing read​.​

We are two people who found each other by sheer luck. We spend way too much time living off fantasy worlds and falling in love with these worlds and its characters.
