Wren Varankai is destined to become a heroic Shuv’hani, a clairvoyant medicine woman said to possess powers over the earth, seas, and air. Equally strong predictions warn she will face death and danger in a land torn by war. Separated from her family, she dedicates herself to the fight against slavery, serving as a spy for the Underground Railroad and a nurse in America’s Civil War. Can she fulfill a destiny of greatness, or will she meet her death and lose her loved ones forever?
Caren Liebelt is a Registered Nurse and licensed health care administrator. She is a graduate of Weber State University and lives in Taylorsville, Utah. Her deep interest in herbology and homeopathic remedies led to her interest in Gypsy Shuv’hanis and Native American curatives. Her love of the Civil War and Antebellum period made this a perfect backdrop for her story of a young Gypsy medicine woman. Shuv’hani is her fifth novel. Caren is an award winning novelist and poet, but her favorite and most fulfilling role is as mother and grandmother.
