If you consider the earth sacred, you will want to read this book. 

Zabel is raised to be a warrior queen but she vows to defend the ways of the Great Mother. Her greatest challenge comes when she must decide how to protect her loved ones from the greed and covetousness that would destroy them.

Masterfully plotted, Pearl Gray sheds light on the plight of 12th Century women. A novel of love, courage and fate, set in southern Anatolia and France. Zabel clashes with the powerful forces that demand religious conformity.

A potent social document that is also an inspiring adventure. Rich in sensuous detail of character and landscape, Zabel is a story of loneliness and community, despair and joy.BookCover10
