“[T]here is real sweetness in the saga’s finale, when Ayla’s legacy to the world — both hers and ours — is made clear. Myriad things have changed in the last 30,000 years, but the endurance of human love is not one of them.”--Washington Post
“[Auel] does paint a convincing portrait of ancient life. And readers who fell in love with little Ayla will no doubt revel in her prehistoric womanhood.”--People
“As with her other books, Auel spins her tale with credible dialogue, believable situations and considerable drama. More than that, she deftly creates a whole world, giving a sense of the origins of class, ethnic and cultural differences that alternately divide and fascinate us today. Among modern epic spinners, Auel has few peers.”--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
“[T]he millions of readers who have been with Ayla from the start will want to once again lose themselves in the rich prehistoric world Auel conjures and see how this internationally beloved series concludes.”--Booklist
“[R]eaders who enjoyed the previous volumes will relish the opportunity to re-enter pre-history one last time.”--Publishers Weekly
"[T]he book is compelling and will be in high demand by Auel’s fans."--Library Journal

Jean M Auel, I find has brought back to life the way things may have been 30,000 or 40,000 years ago in a way that is intrigueing and insightful. Was this the way it was ? Read morePublished 15 months ago by jldy
