Overview

The Shore of Women by Pamela Sargent, Stephen Largay, Sarah Ellis

Women rule the world in this suspenseful love story set in a post-nuclear future. Having expelled men from their vast walled cities to a lower-class wilderness, the women in this futuristic universe dictate policy and chart the future through control of scientific and technological advances. Among their laws are the rules for reproductive engagement, an act now viewed as a means of procreation rather than an act of love. In this rigidly defined environment, a chance meeting between a woman exiled from the female world and a wilderness man triggers a series of feelings, actions, and events that ultimately threaten the fabric of the women's constricted society. Trying to evade the ever-threatening female forces and the savage wilderness men, the two lovers struggle to find a safe haven and reconcile the teachings of their upbringings with their newly awakened feelings.

I borrowed this book from my local library many, MANY years ago - it was newly released. I devoured it! The story grabs hold of you and doesn't let go. Seargent's characters are very real, you get emotionally involved with them, their beliefs and their relationships. This story also portrays gender biases/sexism in a new and very provocative light. This is an excellent read and I'm planning on adding it to my library so I can read over and over again.
