Journey back into the deep mists of time, enter the lives of a savage people whose rituals include human sacrifice and ritual cannibalism; a superstitious people who fear the magic of the Shamans who live among them; a patriarchal people who forbid women to be hunters, or go among the horse herds, or become shamans.
Enter the frightening, powerful life of Sparrow, the daughter of the tribe's Shaman and a captive woman. She is destined to do all those things, for the Horse Goddess herself has come among the herds of the tribe in the form of a proud mare, and she has chosen Sparrow to be her servant and priestess.
Lady of Horses is a passionately romantic book, a historically accurate book, and a wildly adventurous book. It is a love song to the ancient, mysterious bond between women and horses, and, like Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon, takes the reader back to a time of goddess worship and women's power.
