The Year the Horses Came by Mary Mackey

“A researcher’s precision combined with storytelling magic.”-Marija Gimbutas, author of The Civilization of the Goddess”Vivid, dramatic, compelling.”-Marge Piercy, author of Woman on the Edge of Time

Volume One of The Earthsong Trilogy evokes the moment in pre-history when marauding nomads brought horses, male gods, and war to a goddess-worshipping Europe that had known peace for thousands of years. Against this perilous backdrop, a passionate, dangerous love develops between Marrah, a gifted priestess, and Stavan, one of the invading warriors.
