Following Lynn V. Andrews on the continuation of her life’s journey to embrace her sacred feminine power, Star Woman, the fourth book in the internationally bestselling Medicine Woman series, will inspire you to face your fears, recognize your shadow self, and embrace the power of the stars inherent within.

A little more than a decade has passed since Lynn Andrews first became initiated into the Sisterhood of the Shields, a secret circle of woman shamans from all over the world, but her journey into the depths of her own power has seemingly just begun. Serving as a bridge between primal ancient knowledge and modern consciousness, Lynn must embrace the dark side of her own spirit and follow the west wind, tapping into the innate, extraordinary powers that exist within us all.

Upon visiting a man claiming to have bred a magical horse, Lynn meets the spectacular white stallion, Arion. But, obsessed with power, the horse breeder deceives Lynn, poisoning and kidnapping her for the evil shaman Red Dog, who longs to finally destroy her. In a blaze of light and glory, Arion and Lynn escape, starting her vision quest into the depths of her soul. When she awakens, she meets a new teacher of the Sisterhood: Twin Dreamers, a nomadic shape-shifting shaman woman who, together with Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, guide Lynn in the unraveling of the barriers of her consciousness, her self-imposed limitations, and her deepest fears.

About the author(s)

The late Lynn V. Andrews was the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of the Medicine Woman series, which chronicles her three decades of study and work with shaman healers on four continents. Her study of the way of the sacred feminine began with Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, Indigenous healers in northern Canada. Her quest for spiritual discovery continued with a shaman curandera of the Yucatec Maya people, a Koori Aboriginal woman of high degree in the Australian outback, and a Nepalese healer in the foothills of the Himalayas. Today, Lynn is recognized worldwide as a leader in the fields of spiritual healing and personal empowerment. A shaman healer and mystic, Andrews is widely acknowledged as a major link between the ancient world of shamanism and modern society’s thirst for profound personal healing and a deeper understanding of the pathway to enlightenment.


“A wondrous spiritual and temporal progress as an apprentice medicine woman…one woman’s quest for spiritual unity and enlightenment.”

“A glimpse of other realities…we’re reminded once again of the power of our thoughts and the crippling effects of fear and self-limitation.”

"Lynn Andrews is one of my favorite writers. She helps every woman find a sense of her own importance."

—Marianne Williamson, author of Return to Love and A Woman's Worth

“Lynn is one of the most profound people of our time. Her work in the shamanistic traditions has provided effective guidance to me and many others looking for answers. I love her!”
