Publisher's Summary

A backwoods bar run by a shape-shifter. A road that changes length, direction, and destination. A young man, lost in the forest and dying, hears the cry of a raven. 

Set in a dystopic near future, Raven Woman’s Tavern is the story of a collection of survivalists who are squatting in the remains of a dead timber town in the Northwest. 

The residents - most of them old, sick, and in need - help each other by means legal and extralegal under the watchful eye of Rachel, the tavern keeper. When the peace of the community is disturbed by the sudden visit of four members of the local militia, the survivalists are frightened; not all of them are law-abiding and some are not citizens. 

But, as Crazy Mary said to Charlie the Poet, “You don't piss Rachel off. She's got her ways."

I Really Enjoyed this Audible book

This is a Story with a host of characters that all have their different oddities. The MC Rachel is the tavern owner, but Oh So Much More. This is a Delightful listen/read and sort of spiritual in it's own way. Narrator did a lovely job with the characters voices and the entire storyline. I have never listened/read this author before and was pleasantly surprised by the tale.

Redemption

I really enjoyed this story about a struggling community trying to stay together with the help of two savior's by the name of Rachel and Jimmy. The town may not have a major population but they help each other in any way they can even against the militia. I fell in love with this relatable quirky cast of characters because they were a family not by blood but by what truly matters their bond of faith and friendship. The only very small part I did not like about the book was the militia use of a racial slur. Steve Connor does an phenomenal job keeping the story believable and light with his narrative skills. I would definitely highly recommend this book to anyone who loves books about redemption, shifters, community with a touch of karma thrown in. The one thing to remember is Rachel is always watching and she has her ways!
This is my honest unbiased review of Raven Woman's Tavern.

Not bad

At first I had a difficult time getting into this book. The narrator does a good job bringing the listener back in though. I received this copy free and am leaving an honest review voluntarily.

Not what I was expecting

The first chapter had me a little confused, but every chapter got better and better. The story really pulls you in and the narrator did an excellent job.

A strange but engrossing story

This is a strange story, but I found it engrossing and listened to it in one sitting. In a future ravaged by climate change a few people live in a remote ghost town and wait to die, protected and assisted by an ancient spirit of the Raven. It reads like a series of linked character tales that form one narrative, I really enjoyed the characters who are well described . I also liked the way the story focusses on the small number of characters and their lives and although it go into details of the effects of climate change it makes the story about them rather than the big picture. I enjoyed the strange touches in the story and the supernatural elements which are quite subtle, The narrator does an excellent job with the story making it a pleasure to listen to. I received a complimentary copy from the narrator and am leaving a voluntary honest review.
