My Brother's Keeperby Raven Williams, James R. Schott
Even though he is 56, he is still much like a child
I am the middle child. I have an older brother and a younger sister. My brother, Jim, was born in 1958. At the time he was born, he was diagnosed with brain damage. The damage affects his speech, coordination, and emotions. Based on today's information, he could be considered Autistic as well as having Asperger's.
Even though he is 56, he is still much like a child in many ways. He spends his days watching the news, the Weather Channel or the History Channel (or a basketball or baseball game if one is on) and sketching. When he is not sketching, he can be found staring off into space in his own little world.
My Brother's Keeper details mine and my brother's lives from birth to present day. We share what we have gone through in the hopes it will help others.

Reviewed by Paul J. for Readers Favorite Elle Drowssor, estranged daughter of an Ojibwa Chief, receives a strange call from her best friend. Something is very wrong at home and Elle needs to come right away. Elle drops everything and on her arrival back home she discovers there is indeed trouble. Grave robbers, Chemokamen, are stripping artifacts and heritage from the tribe, and a Real Estate magnate wants to buy the Ojibwa ancient burial grounds. Is it because the property has river access, or something more? From the start Elle is warned to leave and not get involved. What she thinks she must protect her friend and her father from is not at all what she finds to be the real problem. Elle is worried but has no intention of leaving until she finds out what is causing all the chaos. Events quickly escalate and Elle must take action for herself and the Ojibwa people because nothing is as it seems in this tale of intrigue and tribal tradition. "My Brother’s Keeper" is an interesting story in the cozy mystery genre. What sets it apart is the location and the Native American influence. Ms Williams weaves a good tale and I quickly found myself likening her style to that of Tony Hillerman and his Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels. Her characters are first rate, the good and the not so good, and I particularly liked the old Medicine Woman. The plot, while simple, was well-thought out and straightforward. Unfortunately I felt the end was just a little rushed. However, I can see where there is a future for Elle Drowssor, medicine woman in training, in other Ojibwa Reservation Mysteries. Very Good.
