Review quote

Once again, Kathleen O'Neal Gear has brought alive with extraordinary vividness and realism the lives of the first Americans in her splendid novel, "It Wakes in Me." I read this dramatic and haunting novel in one sitting. Gear is more effective than any time-machine in transporting the reader back to the vast, beautiful, and unspoiled world of prehistoric North America. "Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Tyrannosaur Canyon and coauthor of The Book of the Dead" This dramatic and involving story will transport readers to another time, where women were the power players in society. The historical detail and vivid descriptions make this a fascinating and compelling read. "Romantic Times BookClub Magazine on It Wakes in Me" A multi-layered, complex plot with lushly evocative prose and darkly erotic passages. "Booklist on It Wakes in Me" Vivid . . . Gear provides plenty of intrigue . . . and spices things up now and then with steamy, erotic passages. "Kirkus Reviews on It Wakes in Me""show more
