Daughter of the Raven
The main story in "Daughter of the Raven" is about Anya Bressoff as she makes her way across Siberia, trying to get home to Alaska, after being kidnapped. The story, however, is more complex than that. It intertwines the lives of Anya's family, her husband, and the man who has always loved her. It is not your typical romance book. Except for a few scenes, I might not call it a romance at all. It is more of an adventure book, with a slightly spiritual aspect. The theme of healing from forgiveness is strong throughout the story.
Set in the late 1800s, the story begins on America's west coast. It takes you to Seattle, where the inhabitants are ones you'd find in a wild west novel. It also touches on the slave and prostitution of Chinese girls.
What I liked most was following Anya across Siberia as she used survival skills and her wit to keep herself and a young boy alive. The author has provided many interesting ways to survive in the cold, harsh climate.
Well worth the time to take a look at this book.
