Book Review of Ember from the Sun

Ember from the Sun
reviewed on

from the back cover:
In the blue ice of an arctic cave, a scienist has made an extraordinary discovery: a woman's body, frozen for 25,000 years in a near perfect state, with pliant tissues, vessels filled with blood, and an embryo waiting to be born....
They called her Ember, the child of thier heart, born to surrogate parents who refused to yield her after birth. Raised among the Quanoot Indians, Ember is as modern as those around her, a young woman struggling with a loneliness and yearning she does not yet understand. Stronger than her classmates, imbued with the power to heal, Ember's soul resounds with the cries and whispers of a time she has never seen, and of a people who beckon her home.....
