These people of the Ninth Cave fascinate Ayla, and in their spiritual leader—the woman who initiated Jondalar into the Gift of Pleasure—she finds a fellow healer with whom to share her knowledge.But as Ayla and Jondalar prepare for their formal mating at the Summer Meeting, there are difficulties. Not all the Zelandonii are welcoming. Some fear Ayla’s unfamiliar ways and her relationship with the Clan, openly opposing her union with Jondalar. Now Ayla must call on all her wisdom and instincts to find her place in this complicated society, to prepare for the birth of her child, and to decide on the role she is to play in shaping the destiny of the Zelandonii.Fifth in the acclaimed Earth’s Children® series
I like Jean Auel books enough to keep reading them. But she describes the prehistoric environment alot more than I want. I know she puts a lot of research into each book. She also repeats characteristics of the clan over and over again. If you can overlook the repeat of clan characteristics and relax and enjoy the prehistory lesson, the story is really interesting. I am waiting impatiently for the next book!
