Loved rain. Alices talent in writing never ceases.

The author might have been intending this book for girls, but it reads like free style poety. A beautiful 'fable' of a tribe of women fighting battles to survive in a brutal world. Rebellion and cruelty are part of the culture; just because they are a amazon women does not make them perfect or peaceful. It is the story of The daughter- who- will- be-queen, unloved because she is a product of gang rape of her mother but blessed with a compassion for creatures outside of her own tribe. A simple story, beautifuly told and perfect platform for a mother/daughter shared read.
