Avey, Sydney. The Sheep Walker’s Daughter. USA: HopeSprings Books. 2013.
Set in the 1950’s, Delores (Dee) Moraga-Carter is dealing with her mother’s recent death. As a widower for years, Dee has only her daughter, Valerie, left in her life. Through clues found while going through her deceased mother’s items, Dee discovers there is more to her life than she ever imagined. Secrets, puzzles, family relationships, and tough decisions may be just what Dee needs to find out the truth about herself, including her connection to a Basque Spaniard.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Though not my usual genre, I found The Sheep Walker’s Daughter to be a different type of book than I expected. A bit hard to follow (due to the first-person writing style and frequent changing of characters), the wording was creatively done. Written and published as a religious book, as a caution, this book contains curse words and suggestive material. The storyline and materials were innovative; however, this was not a book which I relished.
