I was given a copy of The Whispering of Trees through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:
At first Aggie embraces the Inupiat Eskimo ways until a powerful demon invades her dreams, scaring her away from the very ways she embraced. When a friend betrays her the demon reappears.
When her Friend Kevin hangs himself his sister blames Aggie for not helping him.
Aggie feels like a failure as a Shaman when she can’t make her Father Stop drinking, her Mother stop feeling all the Burden or even stop her Uncle from raping her.
Shortly after her Uncle rapes her Aggie finds out she’s pregnant. For awhile she hide s the secret from everyone but one friend soon though she has to tell her parents too, and at first her Father does not want to believe her.
Will Aggie be able to move past what her Uncle did to her or will she continue to feel anger, hate, pain and shunned by those who were once her friends.
I recommend Thr Whispering of Trees to those fourteen over due to Subject matter and strong language.
Five out of five stars
