Daughters of a Coral Dawn by Katherine V. Forrest

“The sky begins to shimmer with the silver of brilliant star clusters, the eerie radiance of red and blue flourescence. One huge moon, glowing gold, is soon joined by two others, much smaller, which slowly rise above the horizon, each jagged in shape as if carelessly formed. Night falls suddenly and completely, and we sit together in a glorious royal-blue world illuminated with silver. It is Mother who speaks, softly: ‘So lovely a world. . . is surely meant for women.’”

Late in the 22nd century, the settling of a new world falls on the strong shoulders of young Megan. The perfect leader, she undertakes to guide her sisters to a new planet, free from the shackles of the brutal Earth regime. Negotiating politics in a society of women is second only to securing their safety. When a landing party of men and women discover their colony Megan must decide if the outsiders will live or die. And that includes Lt. Laurel Meredith, whose disturbing beauty is as dangerous to Megan as her people are to Megan's world.

Originally published in 1984 by Naiad Press.

I love this book! It was beautifully written and captured the nuances of the culture in such a way that it swept you up into their world. It's a must have!

One of Forrest's better tales, of women escaping oppression on their home world to build a new life on another. Not without struggles and conflicts itself, the new colony struggles to assert itself and survive, creating a home where they can finally dwell in safety and raise their children in peace.

What a world! If only we could achieve the equality these women share! This book is fantastic! I cannot count the number of times I have read it!
