More About the Author

Lyn was born in Liverpool in September 1944. Her father Joseph was killed on D-Day in 1944 when Lyn was just nine months old. When Lyn was three her mother Monica married Frank Moore, who became 'Dad' to the little girl. Lyn was brought up in Liverpool and became a secretary before marrying policeman Robert Andrews. In 1970 Lyn gave birth to triplets - two sons and a daughter - who kept her busy for the next few years. Once they'd gone to school Lyn began writing, and her first novel was quickly accepted for publication. She has since written a further thirty-five novels.

Lyn lived for eleven years in Ireland and is now resident on the Isle of Man, but spends many weeks of the year back on Merseyside, seeing her children and four grandchildren.

Format: Paperback
Flight of the Seventh Moon is the sequel to Medicine Woman, which was first marketed as a true story, then as a novel, although I didn't know that when I began this, and hadn't read it. The words on one of the prelim pages of Flight of the Seventh Moon state `this is a true story', but from the first page I had my doubts, which quickly turned to incredulity then annoyance. The author, supposedly continuing her shamanic teaching with Agnes Whistling Elk, is in fear of her life from Red Dog, with whom she seems to be engaged in some sort of struggle to do with the power of the sacred feminine. The book is subtitled `The Teaching of the Shields', and Agnes and Ruby, another shamanic woman, guide her through the process of creating these, alternately testing and rewarding her with a sort of `good cop' `bad cop' method and helping her experience extraordinary manifestations or visions that advance her path to realizing her innate power as a woman. I must say I did wonder what was in that tea they were always drinking.

As a novel of a spiritual quest it works on some level, although most of the text details the making of the shields and the experiences of the initiate, and I guess that anyone interested in the shamanic path of the North American Indian might find the rituals useful for their own quest, just supposing they felt secure in the knowledge that the information contained in the book was not merely a product of the author's imagination.

This instalment of Lynn.V.Andrews' adventures sees her doing battle with Red Dog once again, a shaman using his abilities for all the wrong reasons!
I have read all of Andrews' books and have thouroughly enjoyed them. Wether truth or fiction they are a very good story.

Andrews books come under the same catagory as Dan Millmans 'Peaceful Warrior' books which is personal growth/fiction. I think some people have the false idea that the whole thing must be lies is understandable when the correct catagory was not given at time of printing or even avaliable as a catagory from the publisher.

As Millman said about his books: "This story is based on my adventures, yet it is also a novel"
The same applies to Andrews and her books. She is telling her spiritual journey through the method of story telling. I believe we have enjoyed that privelige for thousands of years!

All in all this is a good read and a timeless story!

An immensely powerful book that whets the appetite for more. 16 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
While reading this book in a dark, wooden, cave-like basement apartment, I was mesmerized by this woman's journey into a personal spiritual realm. Discoveries, dangers, and strong ties to surprising teachers wove a fascinating tale. More than just a book - it contains a treasure-map to claim one's own strengths. As soon as I finished, I wanted to begin my "education," and did.

Story Telling and More 3 Feb. 2008
By C. Solomon - Published on
Format: Paperback
Lynn Andrews tells a great story with a liberal sprinkling of Native American wisdom to give it heft and meaning. PLEASE don't make the mistake, as I did, of reading this before reading the first book in the series, Medicine Woman. The latter really sets the stage for all that follows, and the chronology is important in the first two efforts, in my opinion.

Whether or not you read these books as fiction or non-fiction, is not paramount to their strengths. Lynn Andrews is similar to the wonderful Carlos Casteneda, but more accessible, I would venture to say. These works succeed on several levels, and have rightly remained very popular.
Read and enjoy!

Even more insightful reading it a second time 11 years later. 25 Aug. 2010
By Jennifer Hudson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It has been 11 years since I first discovered Lynn Andrews books. This series of books starting with Medicine Woman is more than entertaining, it is enlightening. It begins with her journey to Canada where she meets Agnes Whistling Elk, a Native American Shaman, who becomes her mentor, teacher and friend. Lynn's journey of learning and adventure, danger and excitement have you reading book after book wanting to keep the story going.

Flight of the Seventh Moon is the second in Lynn Andrew's series. It is as exciting and thought provoking the second time I am reading the series as the first.

Flight of the seventh moon 8 Feb. 2013
By Delia Tamez - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the third book in the Medicine Woman Trilogy. I recommend reading reading the first two books in the series before you read Flight of the seventh moon. One of my mentors recommended Lynn Andrews' books to me. I love them. They are wonderful stories that can help readers that keep an open mind.

Great book that takes you through the authors personal and private experiences. It's easy to get into being a part of the book while learning lessons along the way. Lynn's experiences feel like your own in some instances and in others areas you just know you have experience it for yourself.
