Review quote

"[Auel] does paint a convincing portrait of ancient life. And readers who fell in love with little Ayla will no doubt revel in her prehistoric womanhood."--"People" "As with her other books, Auel spins her tale with credible dialogue, believable situations and considerable drama. More than that, she deftly creates a whole world, giving a sense of the origins of class, ethnic and cultural differences that alternately divide and fascinate us today. Among modern epic spinners, Auel has few peers."--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred) " ""[T]he millions of readers who have been with Ayla from the start will want to once again lose themselves in the rich prehistoric world Auel conjures and see how this internationally beloved series concludes."--"Booklist" "[R]eaders who enjoyed the previous volumes will relish the opportunity to re-enter pre-history one last time."--"Publishers Weekly ""[T]he book is compelling and will be in high demand by Auel's fans."--"Library Journalshow more
