Spirit Lights

Spirit Lights

by Bonnie Turner




Set in Canada's Northwest Territories in the 1930s, Spirit Lights continues the adventures of twelve-year-old Jean-Paul, his husky, Sasha, and Inuit friends made in the first book, The Haunted Igloo.

Returning to the Arctic after a two-year absence, Jean-Paul has overcome his fear of the dark only to discover that his best Inuit friend Chinook is afraid of spirit lights!

One dark polar night, after searching by dogsled for a crashed plane, Jean-Paul hears sounds that seem to come from an aurora. Chinook and the Inuit girl Kunee say the spirits in the lights are speaking, warning of danger, but Jean-Paul knows auroras can't talk . . .

This book truly portrayed the struggles that young adults face as they enter adulthood. When reading the book, I actually felt as though I was in Canada's Northwest with the main character, Jean Paul. I experienced his happiness as well as the sadness from the hardship he experienced. You will love this book if you love the outdoors.

This story excites the senses, rewards the imagination, and brings out the child within the adult. Truly a work of art that blends mystery, inspiration, and respect for diverse cultures. Lots of kaona (hidden meanings) to ponder upon.

This book is beautiful in every way; the characters are very interesting, from the young boy to the husky dogs, the author's knowledge of the culture is well used, the story is exciting and passionate. I would love to see this story developed into a film, it would be very popular, for old and young alike.
