Lorinda has a life of luxury made possible by inheritances and her own success as an artist. But changes in the past have brought her sadness, so they are to be avoided. It is enough to be admired for her carvings and artwork. She does not need adoration in her private life. Her attempts to do so do not all work the way she intends. Just when she is ready to give up, all the pieces fall into the shape of a heart.
But will it last? Best friend to Lorinda, she is a woman who uses her sexuality for pleasure with no regard for convention or mores.
Ayahuasca and the Gift of Seeing Through Serpent Eyes
She is blonde and sexy. Flashy and brassy. Runs her gallery well and does a good job as agent for the artists she represents, including Lorinda. She is a no nonsense person with no belief in the spirit world. Her feet are firmly planted in the here and now except when they are wrapped around the firm buttocks of her latest acquisition. He devotes a part of his life to good deeds. Suave and debonair on the outside, Chandler, like many men has a darker side. He woos Lorinda.
Will Anani approve? The Shaman Born to a noble family, his gift of second sight steered him into the role of shaman.
It is a beautiful scene, spiritually suggestive, but not as powerful as the final one of Karamakate, the revitalized young shaman, whose eyes emit the powerful beams of light of the ancestral anaconda. The power of yakruna, is such that, though the Western scientist knew nothing of it, he was nevertheless transformed by the spiritual knowledge it gave.
It is art and was, after all, nominated for an Oscar. Its magnificent use of black-and-white throughout, the metaphors of photography in freezing the images of the actors, and the poetic use of the river as a symbol of time were certainly elements that weighed in the nomination. The preference for the use of indigenous languages throughout the film was a stroke of brilliance.

They were gifts from the indigenous peoples to the West, the film says, to teach the secrets of the Amazon rainforest.

The story is a fascinating, fast-moving tale that slips gracefully back and forth from the present to the past. The characters come to life in brilliant colors, set against the backdrop of Victoria, Canada and ancient Venezuela, South America. Two intense stories are intertwined in the format of this book, creating life struggles, intrigue, and adventure.
The book is incredibly interesting as it allows the reader to learn more about the lives of the ancestors of the present day Caribbean people. Their culture was amazing! The author has obviously done painstaking research into the past in order to bring to life the language, the lives, and the history of the Arawak people, contrasted so well when set against present day life.
The characters quickly became part of my life, as if I too knew them, and thought of them constantly when I could not be reading. I am thrilled that there are more books in this series as I can't wait to find out more about where their lives are headed, both in the present and in the past, and what new adventures will unfold. This was an excellent read. Jan 20, Marie Corkum rated it it was amazing. I stumbled on this series by accident, and I am hooked! I generally read 5 books a week, and can usually skim through a book quickly, with little thought.
With this book, I really slowed down to absorb the characters and the storyline, and yet it did not feel like hard work. This book has a unique story and the imagery is so well written, it pops! You can feel the history and place yourself in the main characters' shoes. Just finishing up the second book in the series, and can't wait for more. If you like mystery, a chance to learn new things and an engrossing read, you've found it!
I shared this book with my husband, thinking that it probably appealed more to female readers, but he loved it as well. An interesting take on a tried and true formula. Definitely worth a read.
