Sequel to "Isle of Women".
Like Isle of Woman, this novel tells the story of a single family reborn again and again throughout history. Beginning with our earliest ancestors who emerged from the Eden of Africa millions of years ago, the story follows two lovers as they struggle to preserve their family and way of life during some of the most turbulent periods of the past.
Sci-Fi meets anthropology. Very cool series.
Spanning the ages from humanity's primate roots to the 21st century, a series of connected stories traces the development of civilization and its environmental repercussions in this companion volume to Isle of Women (Tor Bks., 1994). The use of similar names for the protagonists in each tale evokes the universality of the human experience, while the author's choices of locale-the Orkney Isles of 1500 B.C., the Levantine Coast of 1000 B.C., southern Japan of the third century A.D.-provide a refreshing smorgasbord of cultures. Filled with fascinating anthropological speculation, Anthony's latest novel showcases both his passionate convictions and his storytelling talent
Its a good Piers Anthony book. I really enjoyed it.
