"Stupendous Series!!! - This book and this series is simply stupendous. Part history, part fantasy and part love story is to only touch the surface of these books." ~ Cecile Croghan "Iluvbooks"
"A Romance of the Spirit - I've read this entire book once, and I've read some parts of it twice. Why? Because it's a romance of the spirit, an evolving dance between character, setting, and knowledge." ~ Von Rupert "Yvonne"
A Holy Man, who lives in both this world and the Spirit world, waits hidden in a cave in the canyons, as a newly made woman runs toward him. She flees her would-be suitor, who wants from her more than she can give.
The Holy Man and his constant companions, a colony of mice, accept the woman within the cave. She worries that he may be crazy, but given her fear of the man who desires her, maybe crazy is not so bad.
In this sequel to Ruby Standing Deer's first novel, Circles, the main character of Shining Light is now grown and with family. He dreams of the woman and the Holy Man in the canyons, and knows that, after four seasons of calm and peace in the Forest of Trees, he must go to them.
He seeks guidance, but the Spirits tell him only that he must rescue these two people. Yet he need not go alone. Ever Shining Light's faithful companion and Wolf Brother, White Paws senses he must follow his Human Brother. Thus, one Human, one Wolf, and their two families set out for the unknown.
The adventure exceeds all of Shining Light's expectations, and he learns more about his place in this world than the Holy Peoples of his band could ever teach him.

About the Author
I’ve been a wanderer, and a journeyman newspaper pressman. I’ve spent years rescuing animals and learning from them. They’ve taught me that life does not have to be so hard, if you go with the flow and not against it.
My life revolves around writing and my family, which includes, of course, my animals. Two car accidents in the mid-nineties changed my life. I resented it at first, until I understood I had simply been put on another path. It was not an easy one, and continues to be a challenge, but I accepted it, and I learn with each step I take.
I write because I am compelled to pass on knowledge. My first book, Circles, is more than just a story of family, or of the people who first settled in the Americas. It is a story of spirituality and the simple humor of everyday life, but also of the fear of the unknown. Life presents us a path; how we choose to navigate that “circle” is up to us.
