This lyrical, haunting and ultimately uplifting novel is very hard to describe. I've tried several times to tell others about it and know I've failed to convey the magic that lies between the words. It's a story about five generations of women, it's a story about the building of dams north of Minnesota and the devastation to the animals and people, it's a story about the many facets of the human spirit, both good and evil. But the gem of the tale lies in the connection to Mother Earth. Read the book. Any synopsis doesn't do it justice. It must be experienced firsthand.Was this review helpful?

In Solar Storms, Linda Hogan intertwines story with myth, nature, and wisdom. The richness of relationship between the leading female characters deepens as they learn what requires holding on to, and what needs release. An uncommon bond forms between four rare women who span the generations. This unlikely family travels together from their small village community into the wild, confronting and searching, journeying in community and as individuals. Hogan unveils the silent disappearance of native plants and entire ecosystems from our vast lands, due to development. She connects us to the intrinsic values of what is forever lost, while giving hope for what yet can be saved.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
