Snow Dust and Boneshine
The Chronicles of Granny Witch (Book 1)
by Grendolyn Peach Soleil
Once upon a winter’s night, a lost cowboy finds himself in Purgatory Bend. Patrick Doolin is plagued by a wound that won’t heal, but winter is the season of miracles. As Patrick wanders through Wyoming, he meets Fawna Darling, the mysterious granny witch, who channels the folk magic of her ancestors.
With nowhere to go and a secret Patrick doesn’t yet understand, he seeks shelter with Fawna in the snowswept prairie. Forbidden to fall in love, they form an eternal bond in the dreamscape, but when the bluebirds sing of summer and threaten their empire of dreams, they are faced with an impossible decision. Will Patrick stay in the land of the living, or will he cross over the prairie?
Summer is the season of surprises, and Fawna’s childhood sweetheart, Dezi Ketchum, longs to win her heart too. When winter melts across the gold-slick prairie, Fawna searches for answers under the rose moon. Caught between fire and water and flesh and fantasy, she follows her heart and ventures into uncharted territory.
5 out of 5
This story was absolutely spellbinding. Although the story starts off with a bang, the tale itself has a slower, but still compelling pace. Gentle love, magic, and healing all run throughout this book. The magic is old folk magic, not flashy spells in high stakes battles, and was a refreshing deviation from what you’d normally expect in a book involving magic. Cannot recommend enough if you’re looking for a heartwarming story with a few magical threads woven in.
