This month, CFRB presents Chenoa's Spiritual Journey by Becky Jane Dice.
About the Book:
Chenoa Fawn Gray Owl and her four-year-old brother, River, live in Whiteriver, Arizona on the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation but her parents are about to make a decision that will change all that. She will be giving up family, friends, and the only home she knows though not by choice. The Gray Owls travel to Ohio to visit with their mother's childhood friends Douglas and Barbara Ream for the holidays. While there Chenoa’s father intends to ask Douglas for a position at his clinic. He’s doing all this in the interest of providing a better future for his children but instead Chenoa considers the move a serious inconvenience she’d rather not deal with. During the family visit to Ohio her parents die in a car crash and the Reams become the kids’ legal guardians. These circumstances force Chenoa to adjust to living without her parents as well as off the reservation. Although Chenoa's parents were Christians, she wasn't and thus her spiritual journey commences.
About the Author:
Becky Jane Dice lives in a small town in northeastern Ohio with her husband. She has three young adult novels in print following the story of Chenoa with more to come. In addition she has published numerous individual poems and five anthologies of her poetry.
