A tale of family, earth, sky, myth, and immortality, The Women Who Fly Kites is a reading journey merging poetic desciption to prose.
At the beginning of her Spring break, June, a middle aged science teacher, gets word that her Great Aunt is in dire need of her care. By the time she makes the drive from her South Carolina home through the Appalachian Mountains to her old home place just outside of Lexington, Kentucky, she is nearly swept away by a small landslide caused by recent coal mining activities, and is rescued by a couple of strangers who seem to mistake her for someone, Persephone?
Soon she is hunted by a dark fiend, guided by a strange inventor, cared for by a mysterious healer, reunited with a loving couple, the Brambelwells, and becomes vaguely aware of a family mystery that she is unsure that she wants to solve.
A tale of family, the earth, the sky, myth, and immortality, The Women Who Fly Kites is a reading journey uniting a myth of yesterday to the realities of the day.
