Overview

THE HEALERS is the second book of Stephen G. Lonefeather's saga that began with SPIRIT DANCE. It is now nine years later when after several years of being plagued by discomforting dreams, twenty year old Gordon sojourns to a windswept mountaintop to cry out for a vision. Inside his medicine wheel the spirit energies of Wakan Tanka answer his pleas in the form of a mysterious set of events that include the visit of a great bear. Their answers however, come in the form of riddles that are beyond his understanding.

***This is often the way of The Great Spirit; to give only a suggestion or an unclear message to the inexperienced mind. This prompts the receiver to seek the council of Sages. After doing so, their walk is always more surefooted.

The counsel Gordon receives sends him on a journey to find his biological family. It is a journey of stumbling blocks, stepping stones, avarice, and goodwill that finally unveils his past and reveals his true purpose in the hoop. Though he is guided by spirit energies from time to time, his altruistic decisions are of his own free will. They in turn promote healing to others that he will never be aware of. This of course is always the hope of the Great Spirit.

    This is one of those novels that is very culturally accurate whi

    This is one of those novels that is very culturally accurate while still maintaining a very captivating and intriguing storyline that keeps the readers’ attention throughout. Lonefeather manages to brilliantly transition oral tradition to paper without losing any impact whatsoever. He does so with tact and through this creates scenes and images beyond compare. 




    This story makes you laugh and brings tears to your eyes. Lonefeather writes about a world that is so real that you can’t help but immerse yourself in it. His smooth, mellow writing style shines through, pulling everything together into a brilliant package that you can’t put down. The tone of the novel combined with Lonefeather’s unique style combine in such a way that as a reader you can’t help but feel each and every emotion vividly. You also picture each and every scene in true color, not in some vague way. As an author, Lonefeather also realizes that at times a single word or sentence can describe something as effectively as, or even more effectively than, a lengthy description.




    The family atmosphere in this novel is refreshingly real. This meshes perfectly with his very lifelike and extremely well developed cast of characters. Although some of these characters spend time on a journey that many of us will likely never encounter, their personalities, lives, and troubles are so real that you cannot help but relate to and feel for them. Lonefeather takes real life circumstances and uses his brilliant cast of characters to spin a tale beyond compare.




    This novel is a sequel that follows nicely from its precursor, but yet can be very easily read as a standalone novel. As a whole, this is a novel that has far surpassed my usual 5 star scale. The sheer realism of this story brought me in, but the brilliantly unique storyline kept me captivated throughout. 




    Please note that I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review
