Kate Ferguson‟s life is crumbling
around her as she is shoved out of her
ten-year-old son‟s life as he prepares
for his testing to be the next shaman.
Relegated to babysitting a pregnant
woman she doesn‟t even know in an
unfamiliar place, she is bombarded by
her son‟s growing abilities and her
own, dark secrets, strange revelations,
spiritual trials, and an intriguing female
ranch hand who challenges everything
An Exc erpt
Toni was in her late-forties, maybe, tall, stocky, and native
but had more refined features than those of the local pueblo
tribes or the Hopi, or even the Navajo. A wide intricately-
worked, silver band pulled her shoulder-length hair off her face.
She wore jeans, boots, and a loose, blue striped shirt that covered
any evidence she was female. If Kate hadn‟t heard her speak, she
would have thought she was just another male rancher.
Toni extended her hand, and Kate took it, feeling the same
rough weathered palm that Dutch had. She spoke her name as
she looked at Toni‟s eyes, finding them a deep blue and quite
unique in such a native face. Briefly, those eyes flashed wide as if
there was some message or recognition in their contact. Surpris-
ingly, Kate didn‟t pick up anything, except a sense of trust.
