My rating: <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1531931651″>4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
This book felt a little slower than the first, Walk to the End of the World, and some of the way the world of the women works is a bit offputting and strangely explained. But toward the end where two societies meet, and attempt to work with one another, is fascinating. Both contemporary and remniscent of the past, the tense between assimilating what is good, and leaving behind negative behaviors born out of post traumatic stress from a life time of abuse is very well done, as is the simple misunderstanding and lack of patience on the part of the people who have not grown up in an abusive environment. The end started to feel old testament to me. I will definitely read the next two books, and that is rare for me because I usually get bored with series. Also interesting because there are no male characters in the ook.
