Lynn V. Andrews takes the reader with her as she goes on inward journeys with the help of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and relates the stories of others. Join her as she is initiated into the Sisterhood and creates her own shield, which will show her the nature of her spiritual path (Spirit Woman). Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman). Enter the Dreamtime with her, where she emerges in medieval England as Catherine, and encounters the Grandmother, who offers to show Andrews how to make her life one of goodness, power, adventure, and love (The Woman of Wyrrd).

She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.… (more)

I read it as fiction, totally unaware of the controversy about this author. ( )

A beautifully written book that captivated my attention. It was difficult to put down! I read this book in about two days. I love books that contain valuable lessons inherent within them and this book certainly contained many. While I won't say I agree 100% with the messages that were sent through the hierarchical paradigm, I will say they were well-presented and incredibly meaningful to the story.

This was my first introduction to Ms. Andrews and makes me want to read the rest of the books in her series. ( )

Unless you're gullible and/or into the false historicity of the goddess-worship model, don't waste your time on this book. I felt cheated and I had gotten it for free. The author is controversial and has been accused of fabrication on multiple occasions. ( )
