I honestly did not like this book at all. It was different, and I found the concept neat, but I just could not get into it. It was a required read for my witchcraft study course but I don't feel it helped me at all in any way. I wasn't badly written, just odd to me. Read full review

Owned this for years and finally decided I am never going to get around to reading it. I suspect that its time has past--the notion that women will create a better society, one that can salvage the most damaged of men, is a fantasy that could not endure the reality of women in power.

About the author (2010)

Dorothy Bryant's novels and plays use a variety of settings, from the allegorical island of The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You to her own San Francisco Bay Area (Ella Price's Journal, Miss Giardino, Confessions of Madame Psyche), revolutionary ninenteenth-century France (Dear Master), and South America (Anita, Anita). Her underlying theme is always the same: the struggle of the human spirit to know and become itself.
