I really like the stories in “The Year of Ancient Ghosts”. Some more than others but I think the two stories that stand out for me was” Dindrana’s Lover” and “The Lark and the River”. Both of these stories have religious undertones and backgrounds. Both have forbidden love, both have strong female characters. However all the stories are about women struggles in one form or another.
In “Dindrana’s Lover”, the end circles back to the beginning in an ironic way. The ironic part is how she gets what she wanted in the beginning but in a less than desirable way while her fate and courage leads her to rid the world of a monster.
There is also a strong female character in “The Lark and the River”. Again there are religious conflicts. This time between the regional pagan religion and the Christian religion that has become the law of the land. Again the main female character suffers much for following her heart.
The balance of the other stories I didn’t’ find the characters built as strongly or the stories as complete as my two favorite ones but they were enjoyable reads none the less.
