Dance of the Sacred Circle – A Native American Tale by Kristina Rodanas
**Throwback to 2016** – From the time Thomas and Lillian were born I read to them nightly before going to bed; leading to some time in 2017 when we all decided to discontinue doing so. Their tastes in what interested each of them had solidified by this point. We all continue to be heavy readers, reading daily.
A tale of bravery and magic based on a Blackfeet legend …. “The old ones spoke of the Great Chief in the Sky, whose breath gave life all the world. They said he lived in a wonderful land far above the stars …. ” Another one we really enjoyed … –Camilla
Tomorrow to be Brave – A Memoir of the Only Woman Ever to Serve in the French Foreign Legion by Susan Travers with Wendy Holden
My interest in this book was due to having interviewed Wendy Holden on MeetingtheAuthors.com. I really enjoyed meeting Wendy and getting to know her, so went in search of any books my local library had authored by Wendy. They have several that I’m making my way through. I’ve also requested the library purchase her newest book!
A gripping true story that left me in awe of this courageous woman. An up close and intimate tale of what was endured by those who fought World War II, told through Susan Travers’ eyes about what she experienced.

Another novel by Phaedra Patrick, author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper. I actually liked this one even more than the first novel. Perhaps due to the gemstones and their meanings that are woven throughout the story. I enjoyed learning about the characters as they travel this heartwarming, yet, at times, uncomfortable journey. And, loved the wee bit of mystery thrown in also!
I interviewed Phaedra Patrick on this website in June 2019. You’ll want to check that out too! –Camilla
