    Mr Opally aka Pugix found this book and recommended it to me I enjoyed very much the well researched lives Indian and Colonial in the late 17th century The descriptions of the New England and uebec regional landscapes are beautiful This is the first of a planned uartet of books in a series called Remembrance of Things that Never Happened by Patricia Weenolsen They are self published by what seems to be the author's own publishing house Rubythroat Press The Cave of Storms is sensitive intelligent and well paced with a strong feminine point of view in the protagonist Mary At times the language is a bit uirky but it is stylistically coherent and effective throughout The early setting of the Salem witchcraft trials is fascinating and the author handles it well told from Mary's point of view with almost no exposition The major theme is Mary's developing spirituality There is an element of Indian spiritual culture and magic and a rather strong anti Roman Catholic Missionary angle I found the author's insight into Indian lives to be uite convincing The characters are attractively drawn but I didn't find them to be particularly emotionally engaging including the heroine Mary Perhaps she's a bit too overtly sympathetic intended as an uplifting spiritual exemplar Still I found that to be a minor flaw in my enjoyment of this book I'm looking forward to reading the second book of the series Daughter of the Morning Star
