Dover Graye - Book Review


Dover Graye by Shannon Lee Wolf is an intriguing story from the start. Dover is ripped from his life in Scotland in the 1700’s and reincarnated into Vermont 1963. He is special and gifted from the beginning as he is born “the caul” or sometimes known as “the veil”. A caul is the amniotic sack that surrounds the baby inutero and on rare occasions, a baby comes out still in this sack or with part of it still over their heads. Some People born with a caul usually have special abilities later in life to predict the future, to see into the past, and are usually labeled as “different” due to a seemingly higher intelligence.

Dover Graye starts out literally at the beginning of his life. The story is told from his point of view from the moment he is born. Dover tries desperate to connect with his mother continuously but she sees his father when she looks at Dover. Dover can feel from the beginning the detachment she has from her son.

Dover’s story goes back and forth from his present time to his past life in Scotland. While he yearns to go back to the past, Dover knows he has a mission in this life to strive for. His Native American Grandmother shows him the way of herbs and nature. His other Grandmother will put him back on his path of the Celtic Shamans. Meanwhile he knows there is something he left unfinished in his past life that he must finish in this life.

Dover Graye is unlike any book I have read before. Once you understand the writing style of Shannon (the author) it is easy to get lost into this story and have a hard time putting it down. You can feel the emotions and upset with Dover as he longs for his mother to change, you can feel the struggle he has within as he tries to find himself.

Dover Graye is an excellent read if you are looking for something different!
