Journal Entry 1 by wingerishkigalwing from Salt Lake City, Utah USA on Friday, February 01, 2013
It's been a couple of years now since I read this, but I can tell you I liked it so much I had no intention of releasing it. In fact I bought a second copy, intending to put that in judygreeneyes' box that went missing; I subsequently released that one. Now, to share this book, I have to let go of my copy...sigh...but others should have the opportunity to
enjoy as I did. And I'll just trust that another copy will find it's way to me later.

Besides that it's a tale well told, I was really touched by the Spirit in the book. It is rooted in Lakota traditional teachings, and is both accurate and respectful.


Amazon Editorial Review

Psychologist Dr. Meggie O'Connor - recently divorced, a feminist, and nearing forty - has quit a thriving New York practice to retreat to the rural, scenic Leelanau Peninsula along Lake Michigan in search of a simpler life. That bucolic dream vanishes with her first patient - Winona Pathfinder, an elderly, feisty Lakota medicine woman who has jolted her family with the declaration that the Spirits are coming to take her Across in two months, although she is neither sick nor suicidal.


A healer of lost souls, the resistant Winona begins to weave a disturbing web of traditional Lakota medicine teachings and paranormal events around Meggie whom she perceives as naive and unbalanced, while Meggie struggles to use all her professional skills to keep Winona alive.


Two very strong women, two very different cultures - who is healing whom?


A powerful and lyrical story, Winona's Web touches the heart with its message of hope and prayer, of love and loss, and learning how to listen to the healing web of the world.
