Ayla has much to learn from the Zelandonii as well as much to teach them. Jondalar's family are initially wary of the beautiful young woman he has brought back, with her strange accent and her tame wolf and horses. She is delighted when she meets Zelandoni, the spiritual leader of her people, a fellow healer with whom she can share her medicinal skills. After the rigours and dangers that have characterised her extraordinary life, Ayla yearns for peace and tranquillity; to be Jondalar's mate and to have children. But her unique spiritual gifts cannot be ignored, and even as she gives birth to their eagerly-awaited child, she is coming to accept that she has a greater role to play in the destiny of the Zelandonii.Read Less
I have loved all the earth,s children series and couldn't wait for the next, but this last one what happened? I have to agree with the other reviews, repeat, repeat, repeat. and sex, ok some but it's a little to much of a hard core porn. And all the tittles, half the book was the peoples name over and over, boring!!! Please Jean go back to the original way you wrote the series, it was a great read. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings but I just wanted you to know what one of your followers in the series thought. And yes I can't wiat for the next

A Thrilling Read!
It's a continuing saga about Ayla and Jondalar who allowed their love overcome any hardships, racisim and miscommunications as they expolore what Earth Mother has to offer. It's a sequel to all those books orgianted from Clan of Clan Bear. It's beautifully written by Jean M. Auel, Dont pass up this chance!

Loved the books. My husband is in Germany and I will take them to him. I know he has read one of them and now that he knows there is a whole series, he wants to read them all.
