About the Author
J.M. Ney-Grimm lives with her husband and children in Virginia, just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She's learning about permaculture gardening and debunking popular myths about food. The rest of the time she reads Robin McKinley and Lois McMaster Bujold, plays boardgames like Settlers of Catan, rears her twins, and writes stories set in her troll-infested North-lands. Look for her novels and novellas at your favorite bookstore - online or on Main Street.

Ney-Grimm writes well, and cleanly. It feels very much like home in many ways, except that the communities here have chosen to do things differently: men live in their own lodges, and so do women. The small amount of implied sexual awakening is very appropriate - you can't tell a story like this if you don't include all sides of the person; you could still read this story to children.
The problems are the same: how to grow up, how to become who you really are, what to learn - and how to love. The mother/daughter relationship is particularly well described: can we save our loved ones pain, how, and how much?
This is a world where you KNOW there are other stories, a well-constructed world that stays with you after you finish this part of Sarvet's story.
this is a story about a girl who is born with a limp. there are things that she wants to do but people keep telling her it is not possible. she wants to prove the world that is pretty much is. i loved how the character has been sketched. done really well. i also liked the length. it is not to short neither too draggy. i like it how some authors know how much to feed the readers. overall i loved the book and recommend it to everyone who needs a role model in life. not just women.
