Hockey. Angeline Boulley’s debut novel titled, Firekeeper’s Daughter, introduces a strong female protagonist who will delight readers of this book. Daunis Fontaine plays hockey with great skill as she’s ready to leave home for college out of town in hope that she will find her place in the world. Family tragedy keeps her closer to home as meth plagues the community and the nearby Ojibwe reservation. Daunis’ knowledge of Ojibwe traditional medicine gets put to the test as she’s called on to do things beyond her eighteen years. The plot is engaging, the characters complex, and Daunis a heroine to be remembered. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Firekeeper’s Daughter from amazon.com.
