Something was out of the ordinary...
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. Our book is based on four days of the Walker Ranch Fire In Boulder Colorado and many of its characters were inspired by the history of the mountain's real life inhabitants.
"We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars...
the stars form a circle, and in the center we dance.
three naive adolescents, leave behind their mundane, predictable lives to pursue unconstrained passion and adventure. They find their way to Na’mow, a mountain hidden behind Boulder’s majestic Flatirons in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. For two decades, they immerse themselves in their love of the land and the joys of family and friends while navigating a complex maze of infidelity, alcoholism, and loss.
All the while, the polarity of nature – the blizzards, windstorms, and wildfires coexisting within Na’mow’s mesmerizing landscape – serves to shape the character of these young, spirited, and undaunted women. But the story does not end there as unseen forces work to orchestrate the trio’s personal transformation into adulthood and prepare them for something completely out of the ordinary: the Circle of Na’mow, a place where the divine feminine is explored and celebrated.
Then, in 1996, a menacing force of nature challenges their love, faith, and resilience, and only one thing is certain:
It is coming.
I loved the book
RICHARD SCHAD, author of “The Taste of Air”
“The book builds, consuming page-after-page faster than the forest fire. I couldn’t wait to know what happened next. The night reading light stayed on and the pages flew by magically. Like the sky of the Mountain, the colors of the characters are so very bright and vivid and ever changing. The love of the Mountain is infectious and I caught it. I loved the book.”
By a mystical gravity, one is drawn…
PAULA J. KRUEGER, M.A., Spiritual Counselor, Illuminate Consulting
“By a mystical gravity, one is drawn into the sacred Circle of Na’mow. The characters’ human, ordinary lives intertwine with spiritual hidden treasures that tingle the senses and enchant the psyche. Settle in with a glass of wine and a deep soul curiosity; and let the Circle draw you into its warm and enlightening embrace.”
A panoramic novel
KATE THOMPSON, M.A., author of “Therapeutic Journal Writing” and a mountain inhabitant
“’The Circle of Na’mow’ is a panoramic novel in many ways. It weaves together the individual stories of women in a mountain community and places them against the ineluctable forces of nature. These characters are transformed by the landscape they inhabit just as they struggle to transform it in their turn. They are intimately bound together and we must go with them.”
Homage to nature, wildlife and a mountain community…
ANITA WILKS, Editor, Highlander Monthly
“Magical divine feminine alongside comical irreverence with memorable characters makes this book a great read. Homage to nature, wildlife and a mountain community of friends gives any reader much to enjoy. The events and characters will stay with you long after you finish the book because they have special meaning and focus on ideas more important than material possessions. Lessons can be learned by anyone open enough to let these wonderful women, men and community bonds forge a lasting impression with their shared thoughts and experiences.”
