Sydney Avey is a California girl who grew up in Silicon Valley and now lives in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Yosemite and the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. She has a bachelor's degree in English from the University of California, Berkeley, and a lifetime of experience writing news for non profits and corporations. Her work is featured or forthcoming in Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, Forge Journal and Epiphany Magazine. She blogs at sydneyavey.com on topics related to relationships, legacy, faith, and the writing life.
"The Sheep Walker's Daughter" by Sydney Avey makes the reader want to answer the questions for themselves that Father Mike asks Dee as she is trying to make since of her life. After the death of her mother, Dee finds out that she may not be an only child as she was led to believe. There are other secrets that she finds out as well.
I think readers will be able to relate to Dee and her daughter Valerie as they both search for the answers. No, this book is not one to keep you up late at night reading but it will make you rethink why you do some things and why you feel the way you do about some things.
Although the "The Sheep Walker's Daughter" by Sydney Avey was a good story, one that focused on family relationships and how secrets can really hinder us, I am giving it three stars because there are words that I considered inappropriate in a Christian novel. These words aren't using God's name in vain or the F word, but still words that I as a Christian found offensive. I know some will wonder why I included this in this review but I felt people should know if they want to read this book
