Evergreen Susan Amundsonabout this book: In Spirit Rider, readers met Maureen when she fell from her spirited horse into the mud. Maureen was not a very nice character in that book, by design. In Gifts of the Storm, readers find out how Maureen got to be the way she was, and how she changes.
Life can send us many things, many opportunities to learn. In the tradition I hold, these opportunities are called Kachinas. Kachinas keep us on the path of our sacred dream of life. Kachinas are not good or bad, they just are. Though many times, we feel like the kachina being presented to us is bad, or we may feel like we are a victim of circumstances.
Maureen had many kachinas in her life, leading her to feel like she needed to be someone else, or the person others wanted her to be. In Gifts of the Storm, Maureen has the chance to look back on the kachinas of her life and see how they were always leading her on her path. She learns the beauty of those kachinas, and how to truly be herself. She learns the true meaning of friendship and the gifts of family.
Gifts of the Storm is a love story, and a story about loving one's self. You'll like Maureen, and Hick, and Allie, and Inge and Swede, and especially Otis.
Gifts of the Storm is dedicated to Lorie Miles. As I write, I see the characters in my mind. When I wrote the scene introducing the character of Laurie Reynolds, the person who stepped out of the car was Lorie Miles. Lorie Miles was a mother who loved her children. As I wrote the character, I could see in my mind the love that Lorie Miles shared with her family. Lorie Miles passed away in 2008 after a battle with cancer. She will be missed and the dedication for this book is a memorial to her, and all mothers.
