Gravid by Lynne Cantwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Fantasy/Magical Realism
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: people who enjoy alternate spirituality, Native American mythology, good stories
Trigger Warnings: attempted murder, violence
My Thoughts: With so many things piling up on top of her all at once, Naomi has decided to just ignore everything and hope things work out for the best. I can relate! Of course, that is never the case, and many things she has been trying to avoid are forced upon her in the course of this book.
I'm very worried about Looks Far. I know he's old, but he's not that old. I hope he'll still be around for awhile!
The secret is out, of course, and the crazies are coming out of the woodwork, as are the protesters. I can't wait to see how this will all be wrapped up in the final installment! This has been a wild, and highly enjoyable ride, but it'll all be over soon. Of course, there's a new series coming out from this amazing author, so I have something new to look forward to, as do you!

Synopsis: Denial is not just a river in Egypt…
Naomi Witherspoon, back home in Denver after her “vacation” in South Dakota, has amassed a catalog of things she doesn’t want to think about. Her due date is just around the corner, but she has yet to buy a single diaper—let alone look for a bigger place for her, her boyfriend Joseph, and the baby. Speaking of housing problems, Joseph’s grandfather is in failing health and needs to move out of his wickiup, but the old man won’t budge. Naomi and Joseph may have found a replacement for their woo-woo teammate/nemesis Jack in TV reporter Antonia Greco—but Antonia comes with her own set of problems, not least of which is that she’s dating Naomi’s ex-fiancé, Brock. Meanwhile, Jack has escaped from the Mexican drug lord who owns him, and the thugs sent to find him aren’t above roughing people up.
Best of all, Naomi hasn’t shared any of this with her mother, who wants to sell her house in Indiana and move to Colorado.
If Naomi can negotiate this minefield, mediating an agreement between White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman and Jehovah should be a piece of cake…
