The Colour of Dried Bones
by author: Lesley Belleau.
A collection of intertwined short stories.
Together, they show the life of a young Ojibway woman as she struggles to find her place in society, within her relationships, and within her own body. In her exploration of different moments in her life, loves, friendships, hardships and motherhood, she also explores her relationships with her family, her people, and the people around her.
Through observation and intense seeking, she breaks through her confusion and eventually, finds a voice that is her own--even if she does not yet recognize it. Ultimately, she discovers that she must look within herself to determine her outcome. That only by travelling homeward, to her roots at her reserve, can she find the path that leads to healing and rest.
