Dark Sister : A Sorcerer's Love Story
Lynn V. Andrews takes the reader with her as she goes on inward journeys with the help of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and relates the stories of others. Join her as she is initiated into the Sisterhood and creates her own shield, which will show her the nature of her spiritual path (Spirit Woman). Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman). Enter the Dreamtime with her, where she emerges in medieval England as Catherine, and encounters the Grandmother, who offers to show Andrews how to make her life one of goodness, power, adventure, and love (The Woman of Wyrrd). Not all these stories describe the author's own spiritual experiences. Meet Sin Coraz?n, an initiate into the Sisterhood, whose husband abandons her. She nearly succumbs to her inner dark power and unleashes her rage on men and the Sisterhood (Dark Sister). Andrews also writes about the elder women of the Sisterhood: their loves, their lives, their losses (Tree of Dreams). Andrews shows us how to channel our own spiritual and intellectual energy and balance the need for love with the desire for power (Love and Power). She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.

Back cover copy
When Sin Corazon, a ravishingly beautiful member of the Sisterhood of the Shields, begins her training, she is encouraged to explore and confront her fascination with the dark mysteries in her soul in order to overcome them. While embarked on this dangerous journey, she nearly succumbs to the powers of her inner darkness when her husband abandons her for another woman. In retaliation, Sin Corazon unleashes the full extent of her rage not only against men but also by passionately turning against her own Sisterhood. Dark Sister is a book about the choices between love and evil in life, how decisions are made within each of us, and how a woman can regain her own sense of integrity and peace.
