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
kspenmoll @Suet624 You are home! Sounds like an experience that no words can truly capture. ❤️❤️ 3w

I found out about this series last year during #screamathon when I read Paperbacks from Hell. It follows a family through all sorts of creepy events and is definitely worth the read if you enjoy gothic horror.

Addison_Reads @overtheedge There's a collected volume that's easier to find than the individual paperbacks. I just liked look of the old ones. I found mine on thriftbooks.com. 1mo

This is a great Southern Gothic story of the Caskey clan over several generations. At the heart of it is Elinor, a woman who appears in Perdido in the midst of a flood in 1919. She becomes an integral part of the family, for better & for worse.
At the heart of it, this is about family, and being a big enough family to accept lots of differences. Still not sure I‘m convinced that having Elinor around was a fair trade 🤔
Great on audio 👍🏻 🎧

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.

This was fine... there was story set in the past and one in the present, and neither one felt very developed.
