DREAM WEAVER by PENINA KEEN SPINKA
Publishers Weekly called Picture Maker "an
absorbing adventure tale...brought to life through the
eyes of [Spinka's] courageous heroine." Library
Journal crowned it "absolutely fascinating." Now
Penina Keen Spinka once again sweeps readers back nearly a
thousand years...to a time when the Vikings crossed the
vast oceans in search of a new homeland, and a
placethe majestic wilds of North
Americabitterly divided by blood and war.
In the four years since Picture Maker and her loved ones
were driven north, many changes have come to a people and
a land. The long, arduous journey that took Picture Maker
from a young Indian separated from her tribe to a bride of
Halvard has come to an end. It falls to Halvard and their
daughter, Ingrid, an emerging woman, to return to
Greenland and reclaim their home. Here, their Norse
traditions are rejected by the newly Christian community,
where an infestation of beautiful rare butterflies has
resulted in plunder and bloodshed. Forced to wander once
more, the family takes refuge with the Inuits, who have
proven to be allies in the past. But Ingrid, answering the
powerful call of her mother's blood, soon embarks on
another journey-one that takes her to a far-off land,
where her true destiny awaits.
Breathtaking in scope and historical detail, this is a
sprawling adventure in the grand tradition of Jean M. Auel
and Jane Smiley by a gifted author who writes "unique and
remarkable stories" (Anna Lee Waldo, author of Circle
of Stones and Sacajawea).
