About this title
What if your ten-year-old knew more about your past than anyone in the world -- even you?
Sheri Lambert is the classic New York workaholic: driven ad exec, financially successful, emotionally empty. Searching for meaning in her life, Sheri becomes a single mother. From the start, her son, Zig, displays strange behavior. He recalls people and places he couldn't possibly know and leads Sheri to a startling discovery of a hidden ancestry she never knew existed. With Zig, the past alters the present and reality merges with the fantastic.
From the urban grind of present-day Brooklyn to the shamans and rituals in the rain forests of 19th century Panama and Costa Rica, two interwoven stories collide. Sheri learns she must find the courage to trust Zig and his mystical guidance to uncover the secrets of her past--or remain lost from herself and the truth about her origins.
Why I wrote this book:
SONG OF THE SHAMAN was inspired by two vivid family stories:
1) The mystical things my sons told me when they were very little about their past lives and where they were before they were born. Their striking stories led me to ponder questions of identity -- who are we really, what does the knowledge of past lives bring to the present, and why?
2) I discovered late in life that my grandmother was orphaned when her mother died in childbirth. I set out to trace my grandmother's family in Panama but my search turned up very few clues. Though I hardly knew my grandmother, I was always curious about the vacant look on her face, her far away eyes. I now attribute that look to her lost ancestry. With the few facts I did know about my grandmother I began to create this story for her, as a way to give her a history. This book is dedicated to the memory of my grandmother and my mother.
In the end, the process of weaving SONG OF THE SHAMAN'S historical love story with the contemporary single mother's search for her origins transformed me as a writer and storyteller. Please visit annetteleach.com
