The first section of the book was at least interesting, but once I got into the rest of the book I was very disappointed. Being a Zoologist, I was amazed at the conceptual fallacies Lambert wrote in this book. With her education, she could have written a much more believable story.

I just loved this book. What Jean M. Auel did for Europe and Linda Lay Shuler did for America Joan Dahr Lambert did for Africa. She gave me an idea about our prehistric ancestors and their religion - and she did this in a compelling and exciting way.

This book was a great insight to the origins of the foundations of religion. I loved the heroine in this book , and would recomend it to any man or woman looking to find answers to the big questions in their lives.

I first read this book a few years ago, and I was just amazed and riveted by it. I could not put it down until I finished reading every page, it was that exciting to me. It also gave me a lot of perspective, since I am a follower of a religion that finds its roots with the very people that this book describes, and it is intriguing to see the evolution of tribe to tribe as described in this book... especially when paired with the knowledge that the author did not make all of this up, but did extensive research into prehistoric people... it's almost like being there when these events happen, like they really happened... and it really shook me to the core to read about the ways of worship, the creation of the circle of stones and the rituals conducted within them, and made me see things in a whole new light.

I feel that the title of this book was relevant to the story. The circles of stone did bring everything together in full circle so to speak. Aside from the relevancy of the title to theme of the story, it was not a good title. So many other books have a similar title, that it gets confusing for readers when searching for new books to read. There are several books out there that are titled Circle of Stones. It's been 2 years since I read this book, so I can't think of another title for it, but the book was so powerful and riveting that it wouldn't be too hard to come up with alternative titles.

As a follower of goddess lore and earth religions, reading this book was a thrilling and empowering experience. These days, as more and more women rediscover and reconnect with Gaia and open to listening intuitively for real guidance, this fiction depicts some possible origins of this process. I listen and get answers, just like the three Zenas in the book listen and get answers. The sense of connection I felt to women throughout time was glorious, and I highly recommend this book to other people searching for clues to an earth-based spiritual lifestyle.

This book is a very enjoyable read. Comparable to Jean Auel's detailing of the lives and struggles of our earliest ancestors. I plan on looking up more on this author. Characters are easy to identify and scenery is detailing but not boring. It made me appreciate todays advantages of having healthy children and realize that God has existed in all cultures in one degree or another.
