When Women Were Warriors Book III: A Hero's Tale by Catherine Wilson

"In Book II, Tamras moved from her home into the lands beyond its border. In Book three, the stage widens further: she deals with the struggles of whole peoples. Caught up in intrigues that would once have been far above her, the heroine risks everything unless she can not only learn to swim in treacherous waters, but to master them. The heroine’s inner journey continues to match her outer one. She must confront the meaning not only of personal love, but the love that extends beyond oneself and those we hold dear. Catherine Wilson’s skill at tackling the big issues of love, meaning, and humanity is so deft that it all seemed, to me at least, to flow naturally from her narrative in a way I found technically quite breathtaking.…"
--from a review by Charles Ferguson on the Goodreads website

"Being the third and last volume in a series I enjoyed immensely, I knew that I could expect this last book to deliver a happy and satisfying ending. What I didn’t expect was the intricate and daring storyline of this last volume. It is bigger and broader than what has come before, and it is spectacular. … this time the story unfolds on to a whole new level. More characters, more intrigue, greater losses, wonderful reunions. … There’s no taking the easy road here—the story opened up into unimagined dimensions to tell a tale that really is that of a hero.
"… When Women Were Warriors manages to blend mythic storytelling with characters who feel so real you could imagine stepping into the pages and having a conversation with them. A Hero’s Tale skilfully weaves the questions of love, faith and fairness into a dramatic story; not only of a relationship between the main characters, but of a quest so much bigger it takes the breath away. There is everything you could wish for here – power struggles, forces for good and evil, dramatic tests of faith, daring rescues, fatal rivalry, but it is managed with such a deft hand that in the end it is all one beautiful story. What else is there to say? This is not just lesbian fiction, but a story about being human. It’s not to be missed.
--from a review by Kate Genet on the website, Kissed By Venus

In Book III of the trilogy, Tamras must make her own hero’s journey. She ventures into the unknown and encounters a more formidable enemy than any she has ever faced. Character is destiny, and the destiny of Tamras and all her people will depend upon choices that come less from the skills she has been taught than from the person she has become, from her own heart.

About the Author

I have spent most of my working life as an engineer of one sort or another (broadcast engineer, software engineer) and people who know that side of me are surprised when they learn about the writing side. I like science and engineering because I like to know how things work, and I like the arts because I like to know how people work.

It took me 50 years to graduate from college, because I kept getting distracted by life, but I finally earned a BA and MS in Computer Science. Having accomplished that, I started writing a novel, which turned into a trilogy. I don't know why I needed that degree to write, at last, the book that I always knew was in me trying to get out. Maybe I just needed to be old enough.

It is a different time . . . a different society . . . a different world. Some of it may be shocking in content to some readers, but I found myself discovering deep truths and a broader view of the human capacity to love and grow in self-knowledge. I totally enjoyed this entire Trilogy.

The story was uncomplicated but a little long

This series, is by far, one of the best I have ever read. It deals more than a story. It jumps through human emotions and dives into them to make a better understanding of the characters and humans in general. I find myself rereading these books often, always learning more than the last time I read them.

This was a nice adventure and ending for a great trilogy. The drama was fascinating, with great emotional moments. The suspense was so good that it made it near impossible to stop reading. The adventure was so much fun with things that you would not expect. The romance was great with amazing moments of love. The ending was not what I expected, but it was a good ending either way. Hope to read more like this story again.

I reviewed the first two books and was not going to write a third but I remembered there were no reviews for books 2 or 3 so l wanted to let you know. Did you ever enjoy Clan of the Cave Bears? The Thornbirds? The Kent Family Chroniciles? You will love this Sanna7125
