characters Ravensong A Novel

Lee Maracle author of the best selling I Am Woman A Native Perspective on Sociology and F. A fascinating Canadian novel that engrosses the reader so much into the events within the story that Stacey begins to feel like a real person a fellow acuaintance The contrasts between the village and white town are set in fiction but the eery tone invokes a deep sense of compassion and shame for these descriptions are based upon fact and very accurate fact Never have I been so enthralled in a novel that challenges me in such a way To consider the moral implications that were enforced upon the gender race education citizenships health and most of allthe rights of the native other in relation to their dominant white neighbours Catharsis is achieved fully and the literary journey is worth the heartache Fabulous book
