I've read this book many many times. It is very thought-provoking. Although it's a little rough on most of it's male characters, the women characters are very well-developed. Anyone who enjoys feminist literature should read this. And anyone who doesn't enjoy feminist literature should at least give it a shot!

This is not Tepper at anywhere close to her best. The high fantasy elements, such as they are, are window dressing and could have been left out without changing the story, which is primarily "soft sci-fi" in a contemporary setting. The story is mainly a platform from which Tepper blasts away at the Catholic Church for its views of women's place in society. Being set in "the future of the year 2000" doesn't help--the story hasn't aged well. One interesting aspect: Tepper's lead character is happily married, which is something I don't think I've ever seen in any other Tepper work.
