A Holy Man, who lives in both this world and the Spirit world, waits hidden in a cave in the canyons, as a newly made woman runs toward him. She flees her would-be suitor, who wants from her more than she can give. The Holy Man and his constant companions, a colony of mice, accept the woman within the cave. She worries that he may be crazy, but given her fear of the man who desires her, maybe crazy is not so bad. In this sequel to Ruby Standing Deer's first novel, Circles, the main character of Shining Light is now grown and with family. He dreams of the woman and the Holy Man in the canyons, and knows that, after four seasons of calm and peace in the Forest of Trees, he must go to them. He seeks guidance, but the Spirits tell him only that he must rescue these two people. Yet he need not go alone. Ever Shining Light's faithful companion and Wolf Brother, White Paws senses he must follow his Human Brother. Thus, one Human, one Wolf, and their two families set out for the unknown. The adventure exceeds all of Shining Light's expectations, and he learns more about his place in this world than the Holy Peoples of his band could ever teach him.

I just finished reading this book for the second time. It's a wonderful book with so many spiritual lessons. As I have now finished both Circles and Spirals for the second time I will re-read Stones. . I wish you had more books of this genre that I do so enjoy.

Such a Lovely Story!
Narration - Karen Rose Richter - This is a tough one, because she's a fabulous narrator...but, This book has a ton of characters and I could only identify a couple by their voices. I also felt like some of them sounded like children or women, even though they were adults or males. But again, with that said, I thought she was a great storyteller.
Part of the issue may also be with me, in that I have not read the first book in this series.
So...that's my first recommendation. I suppose that it's not necessarily required that you read the first book, but from other reviews I've read, you will have a better understanding of the characters (of which there are many) if you start off with the first.
As for the story? Well, as I said, Karen Rose Richter is an excellent story teller and this is a lovely story. It is filled with charm, a little humor, Native American Lore, some mystery and (did I mention) a large cast of characters and animals!
I really need to go back and get the first book!
