A 5-star review for Shadow Song

Well colour me tickled silly over this 5-star review from a LibraryThing reader.
Available at Amazon
This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I received Shadow Song by Lorina Stephens in the Early reviewers giveaway, and am thoroughly pleased I did. Previously having not read anything by Lorina Stephens work, so for me it was an venture into a new authors work.
The book is set in the 1830’s in Canada, and centres on a young orphaned English girl who is shipped to Canada upon the death of her Parents to her only living relative – her uncle. The story runs alongside a true tragedy that occurred in the village of Hornings Mills, Ontario, Canada, and follows the lives of the young orphan and Shadow Song an Native Indian Shaman and medicine man.
This book offers so much to the reader, with its unique blend of tragedy, love, coming of age, folk lore and history that it should appeal to most. The story flows smoothly with the author treating us to beautifully descriptions of scenery, fully developed characters and enough action to keep you turning the pages. I enjoyed the insight to the Native culture with the stories, beliefs and way of living woven with ease into the story.
The only critic I can offer is the “blurb” on the book does not give it justice. I wonderful novel, from an author whose work I will be purchasing in the future. ( )
