A Gift upon the Shore is a lyrical, haunting story of two women, an artist and a writer, surviving in a dark near future. Driven by rich and fully drawn characters, this is a powerful, compelling story of a friendship that survives the devastation, only to face a more difficult test from the gift found upon the shore& It is also about remaining human under the worst of conditions, and the humanizing influence of books and art, even when their existence is threatened. Above all, it is a poignant expression of the durability, grace, and potential of the human spirit.Jean M. Auel
