The Fifth Sacred Thing
Found this book in my sister Pat's library and was surprised by how good it was. Truly compelling characters and plot. I read it in two days despite its size. Starhawk is a New Age feminist non-fiction writer and political activist. I didn't expect her to be able to make the jump to fiction, but she does it with ease and panache. Mind you, she could have done with a better cover and title. Both put me off the book at first and I had to force myself past them to read it!
