While well written, at times it was repetitive and too long-winded. I loved the imagery and the creativity, but it got tiring to read at times. The story is unique and I really enjoyed the little interjections from Maia's point of view. It gave it a whimsical feel to me. I actually loved that aspect.
The creatures, the characters, the villains... they're well-rounded and interesting in themselves. I enjoyed watching the story shift and change. I just really wish it wasn't so long-winded.
That being said, I do look forward to more books by this author in the future. With a mind as creative as hers, I would love to see where her books could take me.
Discover a beautiful and deeply haunting tapestry of love, pain, magic, and healing.
In a single moment, Maia’s life would never be the same. Because when her miraculous virgin birth gifts her a blind, albino hermaphrodite, she never could have foreseen the fate that lay in store for them both. Adopted by a pack of coyotes and seeking refuge deep in the woods, a sheltered cottage and unseen helpers give Maia and her baby Justice a new life together.
But the world of the early twentieth century isn’t kind to unwed mothers or children like Justice… and when they’re forced to leave their hidden cottage, Maia finds herself struggling to survive in a man’s world. Her only solace lies in Justice’s incredible gift – an otherworldly ability to weave colorful tapestries that can predict the future.
But Justice’s destiny will call them, and together they will share her gift, bringing freedom to those whose stories need to be told. And as Justice opens hearts and minds through her magical loom, she discovers the life-changing impact that she was fated to share with the world.
Artfully weaving together a powerful and deeply moving story that touches on profound themes of love, transformation, motherhood and healing, The Tapestry is a magical contemporary fiction novel where the emotions pour out of each page, offering readers of all backgrounds a heartfelt experience that will stick in your mind long after you finish reading.
