In the time that history forgot lies the lands and peoples of herstory and in Sisters of the Solstice Moon author Gina Martin weaves a captivating journey into the mythology of an ancient time before the rise of planetary patriarchy.
On the Winter Solstice, thirteen women across the world are gifted with the same vision – their world is about to experience a shattering destruction. Each answers the call to journey to Egypt and save the wisdom of the Goddess.
Sisters of the Solstice Moon follows the story of these women; richly descriptive the author writes a vibrant portrayal of the cultures, rituals, lands and people bringing them to life for the reader to become deeply immersed in their world.
Womancraft Publishing broke their own rules to publish this book – they didn’t previously publish fiction but thankfully had to make an exception. Intended to be the first in a series, Sisters of the Solstice Moon, can also be read as a ‘stand-alone’ tale (no cliff hangers although you do rather look forward to reading the next).
A remarkably accomplished novel from a new author, Sisters of the Solstice Moon is highly recommended to anyone interested in Goddess folklore and culture or indeed to anyone who would simply enjoy an engrossing read that leaves you with the hopeful thought ‘what if …’?
