“Inside you, Jessie, inside each person is an inner sky. It holds a power of its own, a weather that can be more unrelenting than the Witch Winds, more life-sustaining than this outside weather. What is different about inside weather is your indomitable spirit.” In Weather’s Store: Encounters with the Sacred, Jessie Eaton leaves her home and sets out on a drive with no destination in mind. Seeing a wrought-iron sign, Weather’s Store, she is intrigued and feels compelled to stop. At that moment time splits and she begins an adventure with spiritual and life-transforming consequences. From her first meeting with Weather, the stores enigmatic owner, Jessie’s illusions and beliefs are challenged. Whether Jessie’s encounters are with the magic and mysticism of the enchanting northern New Mexico landscape or with a healing curandera, terrifying Indian witches or a traditional northern New Mexican woman, Jessie finds empowerment in new perspectives of dignity, acceptance and purpose. Weather’s Store: Encounters with the Sacred is a highly compressed, sensual and suspenseful story. Its unique and meditative qualities explore the traditions and ancient methods of spiritual healing through herbs, rituals, and ceremonies. Mesmerizing and deeply empowering, it weaves the elegance and spirituality of Indian and northern New Mexican cultures into a journey of self-discovery and deep understanding of the demands of individual destiny for Jessie and for the readers. The writing is fluid, rich, and rhythmic, staying with the reader long after the last line is read.
