Nd evocative debut novel When a twelve year old wakes up as a human girl instead of a bear one cloudy morning she embarks on a thri Bear Daughter is an inspiring Fantasy novel which follows a young bear cub turned girl named Cloud Now a human child Cloud must learn human manners and avoid the wrath of her mother s husband Rumble I did love the various character names and how they all tied in with the theme of natureAged thirteen and threatened with imminent death Cloud is chased from the home she came to know to seek a better life for herself elsewhere As she travels she finds herself plagued by dark dreams that will lead her to fulfill her long awaited destinyI loved the comparison between mortal and immortal people in this world The juxtaposition of flawless creatures of surreal beauty with dark intentions had me hooked and unable to put the book down Strong themes included those of identity loss of self and others in addition to mortalityThe plot was fast moving with great structure to the author s writing Cloud s emotional state was well explored and helped me to better identify with her character This magical world was one that I instantly felt a pull toward So many mysteries await the read in its pagesThe one small issue I had with the book was the ending of part four where we are introduced to a character at random after a major time leap This was initially confusing but by the end of the section all of my confusion was put to rest I just wish the sudden change in scenario had been made clear from the start of that particular segmentMany elements of Bear Daughter are drawn from rich indigenous oral literature of the North American Northwest Coast The events of the novel stem from a group of traditions from the aforementioned area that are collectively known as the Bear Mother Story Author Judith Berman found themselves greatly affected by learning of such traditions and responded by writing this masterpieceI loved this book and would happily recommend it to everyone I know I shall be buying my partner their own copy 55 stars
