Seasons, Moons & Spirits 1

reviewed by: Becky
James Snow Bringer is an impressionable young Native American man living on the Montana sheep farm his family has owned for decades. His life on the reservation bores him to death and James yearns to see more of the world. During a trip into town, he meets a bus load of hippies, headed to a commune. When he goes to stay with them, he gets a taste of a different world which only wets his appetite to learn more.
Wyman Crow has faced hate many times and serving his country in Vietnam, and losing his lover there, only makes things worse. He returns home with the deep-seated knowledge that he will always be hated for his skin color wherever he is. It takes some time, but Wyman learns to accept himself and vows to become the warrior his ancestors were, the only way he can. He tells their stories. Wyman will not lie down and let bigots win, determined to fight for equality in a world that doesn’t want him.
A chance meeting at a pow-wow brings James and Wyman together where they quickly succumb to mutual attraction. Wyman falls in love with the innocent young man but when James persists in asking questions about who their people are, Wyman decides to do more than tell him. He shows him. When they embark on a journey of discovery together, James is eager to learn. He’s not prepared for what he finds. Winter Burning – An epic tale of painful truth, hatred, and most important of all, deep and abiding love.
It's not often that I am left speechless after finishing a book, but Winter Burning had that effect on me for sure! Not only is it a tale of love and bonding, but it's a tale of learning who you truly are and learning to be proud of that!
This book is set in 1977 and deals with two men who find each other and find love. One of them is determined to be who he is without shame, and the other is just learning who he wants to be, but when they get together it's magic!
You will fall in love with Wyman and James and the sometimes zany but always amazing cast of characters they meet and reconnect with on their journey of discovery and love!
This book is unforgettable and so well researched you will fall in love with it just as I did!
