The Circle of Na'mow by Anna McDermott, Gretchen Wiegand
In 1974, Bridget, Ella, and Lola, three naive adolescents, leave behind their mundane, predictable lives to pursue unconstrained passion and adventure. They find their way to Na'mow, a mountain hidden behind Boulder's majestic Flatirons in Colorado's Rocky Mountains.
For two decades, they immerse themselves in their love of the land and the joys of family and friends while navigating a complex maze of infidelity, alcoholism, and loss.
All the while, the polarity of nature - the blizzards, windstorms, and wildfires coexisting within Na'mow's mesmerizing landscape - serves to shape the character of these young, spirited, and undaunted women.
But the story does not end there as unseen forces work to orchestrate the trio's personal transformation into adulthood and prepare them for something completely out of the ordinary: the Circle of Na'mow, a place where the divine feminine is explored and celebrated.
Then, in 1996, a menacing force of nature challenges their love, faith, and resilience, and only one thing is certain: It is coming.
