I enjoyed reading this book because Daksha seems to act a little like me. She is a bit shyer than most of the children and introverted, but she is very sweet. However, the book ended abruptly. I don't think that the book tells you much about her. Overall, I still believe that this was a nice story.
Daksha the Medicine Girl
A good read for this 62 year old child.
