Overview

Over 10 million copies sold in 20 languages

As a seasoned reader of the Ringing Cedars Series, you'll agree that "the ancients" knew a thing or two. You may be surprised to learn that they also knew the secret to everlasting love.

Rites of Love compares today's attitudes toward sex, childbirth, family and education with those of our forebears.

The depth of their understanding may cause you to wonder how we lost this extraordinary knowledge. Anastasia assures us that it can be regained.

Through the fascinating life-story of one family, Megré portrays the radiant world of the ancient Russian Vedic civilisation, documents the drama of its destruction and reveals its rebirth - millennia later - in our present time.

In powerful poetic prose, Megré describes a way of life that was grounded in love and non-violence, and then shows the practicability of this same approach today.

Rites of Love reminds us of much we have forgotten - it really is like reading one's own life story and, in the process, awakening from a long sleep.
