In “The Mummy’s Gift” Carol Radmanovich takes us to book three in the “Shape Shifter’s Wife” series. Set in 1859, and many timeframes before and after, this meticulously researched and luminous novel moves back and forth through time spans and locales with an eloquent liquidity, as it follows its lead character, Angelica, through one adventure and life challenge after another, in whichever form she must take to accomplish the goal at hand. And through all of the adventure, problem solving, and danger, Radmanovich’s writing is staunchly embedded with the care and kindness of loving and being loved. Radmanovich’s vibrant descriptions of Angelica’s transformations are by themselves, magical and intense, worthy of high praise and when set inside adventure, family love and romance, they power the story forward.

Nowhere are these traits more on display than when her beloved sister, Heather and husband disappear under suspicious circumstances, and another story arch in Ecuador begins with good and bad magical themes, and then reaches back to California with an arch involving an accusation of murder. In this dense, rich read, family, faith and romantic love are beautifully depicted in each story direction, which are satisfyingly and amazingly melded together in the end.
