Spirit Woman Wins Another Award

 
 
 
Book Review
Reviewed by for Readers' Favorite

Spirit Woman by Debra Shiveley Welch is a magnificent combination of fiction and reality. Nickie, tormented by her troubled childhood, shuts herself down to her surroundings. She does not share the details of her past with anyone. Her low self-esteem forces her to believe that there is no hope for her to find love, and so she has almost given up her quest for true love until she meets Javan Whitman. With him, her fears and doubts vanish into thin air, and -- in spite of her well wishers' warnings -- she ties the knot as soon as he proposes. However, right from the next day of her wedding, she realizes that she has married a demon, and thus begins her marital journey filled with violence and hatred.

The portrayal of the characters is done on an emotional level by sharing their stories. In any book, as a reader, I find it the best way of making an instant connection with the characters. The narrative style of writing does justice to the overall plot of the book. The introduction of a guardian angel was a pleasant and welcome surprise. Some readers may find it bizarre, but being a hopeless believer in extraordinary existences, I found it intriguing.

In Spirit Woman, Debra has touched on many social issues. In her sneaky way, she advises everyone not to jump into a relationship. Love is blind, but you don't have to be. Living alone may be depressing, but living with a monster would be life threatening. She has also highlighted the lifelong lack of self-esteem in people who have had a less than happy childhood. The story is packed with dramatic twists, which are capable of keeping readers' eyes fixed on the pages. I would recommend this book to readers who feel very strongly about the prevailing injustices against women and who believe in the existence of angels -- or, at least, enjoy reading about them.

This is a wonderful book and I like the way the author touched on many social issues of today. I agree with Ankita Love is blind, but you don't have to be. Living alone may be depressing, but living with a monster would be life threatening. I know first hand how life threatening it can be. I highly recommend this book to all women, young and old, especially if you have gone through or going through some type of domestic abuse.
 
It is a beautiful book written excellently by Debra. The prose is of the highest class that ranks besides the best. It takes you along and makes you part of the characters. This is part of a series beginning with the Cedar Woman and now its sequel Spirit Woman to be followed later by yet another book. Ms. Shively Welch writes excellent and gripping prose. It makes the reading smooth without even once forcing you to think ‘what the heck does it mean’. You will be sailing smoothly on clear seas without any large waves crashing on you. When you come to the end, you would be feeling ‘so soon?’ Onc...See More

Spotted Eagle Horse


Spotted Eagle Horse

She stands,
Proud in her regalia.
Sacred dress
From memories made.

Passed down
From grandmother bequeathed,
Reminding her
From whence she came.

Ribbons worn
In black, white, and red:
Symbols of warriors
Their deaths obscured.

Brave men
Riding to the end
Of the universe, on
The wings of the Thunderbird

Precious blood
Spilt on foreign soil
To fight for land once theirs,
Now of buffalo laid bare.

Kachina,
Proudly worn
Two lightning strikes endured
Represented with artist’s care.

Her regalia,
Her story tells,
Of her people – her life:
Rez born in South Dakota,

She is the heartbeat
of her tribe.
Representative of The People,
Woman of the Lakota.
