Sisters of the Solstice Moon (Paperback)
On the Winter Solstice, thirteen women across the world see the same terrifying vision. Their world is about to experience ravaging destruction. All that is now sacred will be destroyed. Each answers the call, to journey to Egypt, and save the wisdom of the Goddess:
She who is Kali Ma from the jungles of Arya, Tiamet from the Roof of the World, Badh of the Cailleach from the land of Eiru, Awa from the Land of Yemaya, Uxua of Ix Chel from the Yucatan, Parasfahe from the Land of Inanna... all racing against time and history to bring us their story.
This is the history before history.
This is herstory, as it emerged.
An imagining... or is it a remembering? of the end of matriarchy and the emergence of global patriarchy, this book brings alive long dead cultures from around the world and brings us closer to the lost wisdoms that we know in our bones.
Sisters of the Solstice Moon is a story of vast richness and complexity, in the tradition of speculative historical novel series, Clan of the Cave Bear and The Mists of Avalon.
Gina Martin creates a magical weaving of exotic landscapes, perennial wisdom, ritual and remembering.
Journey into myth, and allow it to become real.
The first in the When She Wakes series.
