Description

"All the women of my family had gone to war... Now my turn had come... So, it is the custom that a free woman leave her mother's house to bind herself and those of her blood to a neighboring clan, either by the sword or by the cradle."

So begins the story of young Tamras, as she embarks on her journey to become a warrior's apprentice. This epic story is not about battles and armor, but rather about relationships, coming of age and wisdom, and deep insights into the human experience.

Unique and highly entertaining

I don't think that I have listened to a more unique book in ages. I couldn't stop listening and it was not only entertaining but made me think. There is a poetic or lyrical feeling to the writing that makes me think of my favorite classics. Those books that you see made into movies over and over but are never captured as well as the book and the only ones that come close to capturing it are BBC or PBS. Classics that keep you entertained but have depth. There was such a beauty to the storytelling which the narrator, Janis Ian, had a lot to do with, I suspect. The writing was there but she did it justice. .

The historical aspect of a matriarchal society with the oral traditions of storytelling that have meaning kept me entranced. I think that the fast pace of society today has lost something because we don't have much of that anymore. Each story told was a lesson learned but was also kept me riveted to the book.

All I can say is Congratulations Catherine M. Wilson. I hope that others realize what a wonderful book you have written & the choice of Janis Ian as the narrator couldn't have been better. She complimented your wonderful stories within the story you told. This book is so multi-layered and a perfect example of the complexities of any society not just stone age society.

What saddens me is that I didn't know this book existed. It is definitely a book everyone should read or listen to & I'm surprised it has't made the best seller's list.[or did I miss it?]

I think I have found a favorite author & narrator. This is a book to listen to again and again.
I can't wait to hear the other books in this series & hopefully with the same narrator.

Janis Ian's Narration is Sheer Excellence !

The story is very good, but is exceeded by the narration , which includes humming & singing by Janis Ian. When I found out the sequel is not narrated by her, I decided just to read it for myself..if only the author could convince Ian to do the rest !

Amazing, Excellent, Addictive!!!

Any additional comments?

I gladly purchased book II & III before I finished book I…YES the story is “that” good, and I feel no resentment paying for the additional volumes. The story is thoughtful, adventurous, emotional, and exciting. The writing is smart, relatable, and easy to follow. I felt everything the storyteller was feeling, what an amazing writer who can consistently lead her audience to feel so deeply. I am honored to support the author who labored to create such a fantastic story. Catherine M. Wilson successfully created a wonderfully entertaining story. After completing book III I find myself missing the characters as I would miss good friends. A story that invokes such an emotional response is indeed, very well written. Normally I don’t re-read books; I will make an exception and look forward to experiencing these books again and again!

Loved it

Beautiful story about kindness, bravery and love. If you're interested in stories about women and the relationships they have with each other (romantic or platonic) and enjoy the fantasy genre, you'll love this book. Janis Ian has a great voice for this type of story

I've read it twice, I've listened twice. Awesome.

Only regret that books two and three aren't on Audible. This is one of the best stories I've ever read and I've never in my life reread anything but this I will read and listen to over and over again.
Ever young women should read this, I wish it was around when I was young it would have helped me alot.

Brilliant

This was the most brilliantly told story. So beautifully and intricately written and voiced. I don't think I'll find another as good.

Simply couldn't get into it.

I enjoyed Janis Ian as a singer, however combined with a low key story, her voice just put me to sleep.

I really wanted to enjoy the book, the concept is interesting and I usually like strong women type novels, but perhaps I'm too accustomed to more action....though I do love the original strong women book "The Gate To Womens Country" and it's very low key....

In any case, I'm sending this one back..hopefully you'll like it more than I did
