Coyote Summer


Julia has been expelled from school. Sent to live with her aunt and uncle in Kansas, the environment and lifestyle are seemingly alien and hostile. Yet the rigour and rules ignite something new in Julia so that she is forced into action, decision, responsibility and meaningful relationships. Then there is the coyote, a silent summer spectator, as Julia unbends and rediscovers the joy and possibilities of dance…..

I love ‘Dreaming the Bear’ and couldn’t wait to read ‘Coyote Summer’. This is a magnificent book, fulsome, rich, wise and summertime beautiful. I recommend it to all readers looking for a story  that will leave them a little warmer, more fulfilled and hopeful.
