I rather liked this sweet little novel. It portrayed native american people with respect and humor -- a big improvement over those novels that have native men as "savages" who have gone out and "stolen" pretty white women just to have sex with them or keeping them as maids. (Ugh. Don't get me started!)

I enjoyed this book very much. It was a combination love story and mystery set in rural Minnesota.

An interesting story about a member of an Ojibwe tribe outwest that survives by acting as a Shaman for New Age tourists. Rochelle LeClair is the woman who runs the bed and breakfast in the same town and his helping prepare for her sisters wedding as she tries to save the failing inn. A love story that laughs at itself and has some interesting twists and turns. Likeable characters draw you in and provide for a fast read.

Contemporary story of a shaman who doesn't really believe in anything except putting food on the table for his daughter. Then he meets the ancestors of the woman he comes to love. Great buildup, but then it seemed as if the author was tired of the story and wrapped it up as quickly as possible.

A very good story that includes a little bit of everything - an old house, a ghost, a shaman, sex, kids, grasping relatives and my favorite character Ariel (who misquotes famous quotes so they make more sense than the original quotes!). A laid back book that isn't overrun with steamy sex scenes (in case that is what you are looking for)

i personally thought this book was really weird--but it might just be the author's style, i don't know. still, it's got some interesting facts about the Ojibwe indians.

Rochelle is forced to deal with a shaman in order to deal with the ghostly spirits in her bed and breakfast. Romance soon blooms.

In an effort to preserve her heritage, when Rochelle LeClaire decides to turn an historic family home into a bed and breakfast, she uncovers some old family secrets and a little more about her family members than anticipated. She reunites with Birch Trueblood, an Ojibwe medicine man with whom she has a long-held fascination. Digging through family archives, and convinced that spirits of the past are revealing themselves to him, Birch and his daughter uncover truths about his and Rochelle's family lineage. As the relationship between Rochelle and Birch blossoms, a Minnesota snow storm traps them at Rochelle's ancestral home. When the electricity goes out, the fires are stoked in more ways than one.
