Ghost Woman By 

Lawrence Thornton 


 Based on a chilling historical event, Ghost Woman is a tale of the arrogance of colonizers, cultural blindness and an effort at cultural understanding, rape, punishment and retribution. The novel is set on the California coast when Catholic missionaries had gathered under their control the Chumash and other local Indians. In this mesmerizing novel Lawrence Thornton, the award-winning author of Imagining Argentina, depicts the shattering effects that ensue when an Indian woman is forcibly introduced into the white community of Sant Barbara in the 1800s.
