For the past seventy years, deep in the mountains and totally secluded from civilization, a matriarchal society has thrived. In this small village there are no brothers, no fathers, no sons. In this village men exist only to serve the women, and boys have no mothers. In this village men do as they are told and defiance is severely punished.
This is the only Life Wilderness has ever known, but when Jameson is brought in from the outside to be her husband, everything she thought she knew about strength and love is tested. As they struggle to find their place in the village, they suddenly find themselves face to face with outsiders who threaten to destroy everything they love, and it doesn't take long to realize that they will have to work together, men and women alike, if they want to survive.

I really enjoyed the story-line with this book. It was interesting to see how the men and women evolve and change (or not change). Those who are fans of Mary L. Kate's Broken World series will enjoy some of the references that seem to tie this in with a world that is already familiar. Mary did a wonderful job of world building and creating characters you wanted to either love or just...punch in the nose. I was told that this would be a stand-alone book but I still hold out hope that it at least becomes a trilogy! ***Disclosure: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I had no clue what this book was about when I started it. And I thoroughly love every part of this and will want to read it again as you will be sucked in from the very first page!
