Thoroughly enjoyed this story of a young woman searching for her mother. Following Tropical Storm Irene in Vermont, it appears her mother has been swept away in the flooding. The author touches on many topics: addiction, inhabitants of communes and the extended families that result, a hidden Abenaki heritage, the beauty and destructive power of nature, mother/daughter splits and discoveries, and of generations of women lovingly caring for others.

Reggie How was your pilgrimage?!!!! I‘m glad you made it back, Sue. 3w
Suet624 @Reggie You are so kind to ask, Reggie. I have so much to say but can‘t find the right words to use. It was profound for me and, at least for now, I am filled with peace. There were so many deep moments and loving gifts that I received and my heart is full. My small group of 4 was also able to have a leisurely breakfast with one of the visionaries, Mirjana, and it just added to the bounty. 3w

Quotes by Harjo and Berry. (Sorry if the type is too small for some to read.) A great beginning to a book as far as I‘m concerned. A Vermonter writes about a disappearance following Tropical Storm Irene. While this is fiction, the storm and a disappearance definitely happened. The thought was a young man was swept away. He was never found and I often think of him.

Enjoying the strong sense of place and natural imagery in this meditative multigenerational novel, set in rural Vermont.

Disappointed in this one. Too many timelines and characters and it never really got beyond scratching the surface. I found myself skimming a lot.
