Syndey Avey is a new member of WWW and her first novel, The Sheep Walker’s Daughter has just been re-published by The Center for Basque Studies, University of Nevade, Reno. A general trade publisher, Torchflame, an imprint of Light Messages, re-published the digital version.
The Sheep Walker’s Daughter was originally published in 2013 by Hope Springs Books and is an incredibly rich and diverse novel that unwinds mystery after mystery. When a Korean War widow’s mother dies before revealing the identity of her daughter’s father and his culture.
Dee uncovers more questions than answers as she searches: Why did her mother send money to the Basque Relief Agency? What does that Anglican priest know but isn’t telling? Seeking the counsel of a spiritual advisor and searching for fulfillment is just the start of the journey for Dee in this 1950’s Californian historical fiction.
